1. A plasma display comprising:

  • a plurality of scan electrodes;

    a plurality of address electrodes to establish address discharges between said address electrodes and said scan electrodes during an address period;

    a plurality of common electrodes to establish sustain discharges between said scan electrodes and said common electrodes to display an image; and

    a scan driver to supply voltages to scan the plurality of the scan electrodes during the address period, said address period is divided into first second half address, wherein said scan driver scans said scan electrodes in individual succession and, during the first half address period, when scanning a selected scan electrode and changing the potential of an even line scan electrodes thereof, said scan driver varies the potentials of respective adjacent scan electrodes in correspondence with the changed potential of the scanned and selected scan electrode.
