The Leagros Group, which takes its name from a kalos name on five of its hydriae, was the last important and prolific group of large black-figured vases. According to Boardman (p. 110-111 in Athenian Black Figure Vases), "Around four hundred vases have been attributed to it of which nearly half are hydriae, nearly half neck amphorae, the rest amphorae of other shapes, craters and lekythoi, to name the commonest. ...The compositions of the figure scenes have a new vigour and complexity. Involved groups of overlapping figures are skillfully managed and are only occasionally confusing to the eye because the incision is clear and bold and the display of anatomical detail is moderate. There is restrained use too of added colour while drapery folds and patterns are, if anything, less elaborate than the Antimenean although contemporary red figure - the Pioneer Group - rejoices in folds, texture and anatomy. These artists realise what is possible still in the old technique and are able to reduce to reasonable terms several features of the new, rendering complicated folds or muscles with less explicit strokes (and notice the tiny eyes), but profiting from newly learnt skills in showing more eloquent poses..." Herakles and Trojan scenes were the most popular with the Group.
