dc.description.abstractThe Introduction states assumptions and outlines the theoretical background to the study. Chapter One examines a selection of the philosophical evidence for Greek colour-categorisation and conception. Chapter Two considers colour-terms applied to clothing, and the philosophical evidence in light of modern theories about the language of colour. Chapter Three provides a new, integrated, edition of the clothing sections of the 'Brauron Inventories,' tabulated and subjected to semiotic analysis. The Appendix to this Chapter provides a Glossary of all the clothing terms, and discusses colour in different garment types. Chapter Four provides a synopsis of references to coloured clothing in Attic drama, principally for comparison with Chapter Three. Chapter Five considers patterns in the representation of colour in clothing on Attic white-ground lekythoi. Chapter Six provides an overview of the availability, results, and impications of colouring techniques in clothing production. Chapter Seven considers colour as a significant concern of cultic clothing regulations, which are collected and translated. The final chapter outlines conclusions, and is followed by the Bibliography.en
