Andokides, a Greek vase painter active ca. 525 BC named for the potter whose works he decorated, is notable as one of the first painters to transition from the black-figure style to red-figure. In this piece Norton adds several vases to either Andokides or his immediate followers, using the characteristics common to the signed examples to draw parallels. This piece adds material to the study of a key period in the history of Greek ceramic art and to the archaeological work that relies upon pottery for dating, and also discusses the issues surrounding the study of one of ancient Greece's most famous artists.
