Subtitle: Prometheus Painter, Timiades Painter, Goltyr Painter

Although this article concentrates on the work of three early ‘Tyrrhenian' painters, the features described in Chapter 2 apply to the work of all the Group's painters. This survey defines the Group's characteristics with regard to, among other things, the standard decorative scheme and its variations as well as the ornaments and figures. It is based on more than 250 neck-amphorae and occasional amphorae of other type, many of which have not yet been adequately published. The decoration is discussed according to its place on the vase, going from the rim down to the foot.
