Offers the first professional consideration of the title ‘Arktouros’ in Greek legend: it is applied to an early king of Arkadia who fortified a site called Table (Trapezus) and has other links with traditional ‘Arthurian’ features. Suggests a radical challenge to traditional dating and location of Arthurian legend, whose scholars are not normally equipped to read archaic Greek texts. Offers a picture of an archaic Arthur which would explain his ‘mythic’ status at an early stage and make him an import of the same type as the West Asiatic St. George.
