Early on when people tried using the finer Coco 1/2 graphics on their color
TV sets they noticed that some graphic and color combinations resulted in a
false color effect, due to the TV cicuits.

This became common to use and was known as artifact color.

What are "artifact colors"? Does this have anything to do with
the 555 timer chip that is hooked to one of the color lines from the
6847 in my deuce?
