  • CAVI Comments: The kalos-name Euaion is found written in mythological scenes that could be used in tragedy, since he was a poet or actor (or both) - these thought inspired by productions in which he participated; so Trendall–Webster (1971: 4f.). See Robertson (1992), 207 who does not commit himself. - Second white used.
