Further Reading

The most convenient, succinct summary of the evidence for the family of Leagros is Davies 1971. The vases inscribed Leagros kalos are catalogued in an Appendix to Beazley 1963, and their significance is discussed by Robinson and Fluck 1937, Boardman 1992, and Shapiro 2004. Leagros’ role in the traditional chronology of red-figure vase-painting is challenged by Francis and Vickers 1981 and, more convincingly, by Rotroff 2009. The Altar of the Twelve Gods and the Leagros Base have a long publication history, best summarized, with new observations, by Gadbery 1992.
