EUCHEIR

2. Euecheir, of Corinth, who, with Eugrammus, followed Demaratus into Italy (B. C. 664), and introduced the plastic art into Italy, should probably be considered also a mythical personage, designatiing the period of Etruscan art to which the earliest painted vases belong. (Plin. Nat. 35.12. s. 43, comp. 35.5; Thiersch, Epochen, pp. 16.5, 166; Müller, Arch. d. Kunst, § 75.) At all events, there appear to have been families of artists, both at Corinth and at Athens, in which the name was hereditary. The following are known.
