The answer to this is two-fold, as the answers above suggest. The first half to this answer is “amphora”. An amphora is a Greek or Roman vase or pot. It has a narrow neck, and two handles. The best description is really a jar with a narrow neck and two handles. The pot in the picture, however, has a much wider neck than an amphora most likely would have.

The second part to this answer is “red figure painting”. The pictures on this particular vase are red, against a black background. This is the definition of red figure painting. The style is an older one, most likely invented around 520 BCE, and stopped being used widely around two hundred years later.
