Les Apollons. archaiques, below a separate heading for Boeotia, analyzed a
group of kouroi which, for varied purposes, he regarded as items of local
manufacture. so much lately Lullies, within the Jahrbuch for 1936, released an
article of the main glossy form of stylistic feedback during which he endeavored,
by sheer strength of severe perception, to stroll accurately alongside even the treacherous
paths which divide the neighborhood imitation from the international version in circumstances of the

the difficulties of nationwide authorship in an recreation to tre~t all of the material
