- Oxford 1991
A major study of the decorated pottery of Chios. The decoration of the pottery is studied through an analysis of the various styles of painting ranging from the patterned chalices of the 7th century BC, and the Wild Goat style, through the Reserving styles of the 6th century (Animal Chalice style, Grand style, Chalice style) to the Black-figure styles (Sphinx and Lion, Chalices, Kantharoi) with full discussion of the changing shapes and techniques. There are chapters on dating, distribution, and the character of Chian vase painting; and there is an enormous catalogue of over 1600 pieces, a large number of which are illustrated.
The book is in two volumes, one for text and one for plates.
