Acestor (*)Ake/stwr), a sculptor mentioned by Pausanias (6.17.2) as having executed a statue of Alexibius, a native of Heraea in Arcadia, who had gained a victory in the pentathlon at the Olympic games. He was born at Cnossus, or at any rate exercised his profession there for some tine. (Paus. 10.15.4.) He had a son named Amphion, who was also a sculptor, and had studied under Ptolichus of Corcyra (Paus. 6.3.2); so that Acestor must have been a contemporary of the latter, who flourished about Ol. 82. (B. C. 452.) [C.P.
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Se'xtius Vaticanus (search)
Capitoli'nus, P. Se'xtius or Se'xtius Vaticanus surnamed VATICANUS, was consul in B. C. 452 with T. Menenius Agrippa. In this year the ambassadors who had been sent to Athens for the purpose of consulting its laws and institutions, returned to Rome, and in the year following P. Sextius was one of the decemvirs appointed to draw up a new code of laws. Festus (s. v. peculates) mentions a lex multaticia which was carried by P. Sextius and his colleague during their consulship. (Liv. 3.32, &c.; Dionys. A. R. 10.54.) [L.S]
id to have been his rival in love. (Ath. x. p. 436f.) Ion was familiarly acquainted with Aeschylus, if we may believe an anecdote related by Plutarch (De Profect. in Virt. 8, p. 79), but he did not come forward as a tragedian till after that poet's death. We also learn from Ion himself (in his e)pidhui/ai, apud Aih. xiii. p. 603e.) that he met Sophocles at Chios, when the latter was commander of the expedition against Samos, B. C. 440. His first tragedy was brought out in the 82d Olympiad (B. C. 452); he is mentioned as third in competition with Euripides and Iophon, in Ol. 87, 4 (B. C. 429-428); and he died before B. C. 421, as appears from the Peace of Aristophanes (830), which was brought out in that year. Only one victory of Ion's is mentioned, on which occasion, it is said, having gained the dithyrambic and tragic prizes at the same time. he presented every Athenian with a pitcher of Chian wine. (Schol. ad Aristoph. l.c. ; Suid. s. v. *)Aqh/naios; Ath. i. p. 3f.; Eustath. ad Hom.
Lana'tus 3. T. MENENIUS AGRIPPAE F. AGRIPPAE N. LANATUS, called by Livy Titus, and by Dionysius Lucius, but by the other authorities Tilus, was consul with P. Sestius Capitolinus Vaticanus, B. C. 452, the year before the first decenlvirate. (Liv. 3.32; Dionys. A. R. 10.54; Diod. 12.22.) It appears from Festus (s. v. peculatus) that the consuls of this year had something to do with the lex Aternia Tarpeia, which had been passed two years previously, but the passage in Festus, as it stands at present, is not intelligible.
ld temple of Hera was burnt in Ol. 89. 2, B. C. 423 (Thuc. 4.133; Clinton, F. H. s.a.); and, including the time required to rebuild the temple of the goddess, the statue by Polycleitus in the new temple could scarcely have been finished in less than ten years; which brings his life down to about B. C. 413. Comparing this conclusion with the date given by Pliny, and with the fact that he was a pupil of Ageladas, Polyclei tus may be safely said to have flourished from about Ol. 82 to 92, or B. C. 452-412. A further confirmation of this date is furnished by Plato's mention of the sons of Polycleitus, as being of about the same age as the sons of Pericles. (Protag. p. 328c.) Of his personal history we know nothing further. As an artist, he stood at the head of the schools of Argos and Sicyon, and approached more nearly than any other to an equality with the great head of the Athenian school, whom he was even judged to ave surpassed on one occasion, in the celebrated competition of the
Se'stia Gens originally patrician, afterwards plebeian also. This name is frequently confounded with that of Sextius, and the two names may originally have been the same; but the ancient writers evidently regard them as two distinct names, and they are accordingly so given in this work [SEXTIA GENS]. The only member of the gens who obtained the consulship under the republic, was P. Sestius Capitolinus Vaticanus in B. C. 452, who was also decemvir in the next year ; and no other person of this name appears on the consular Fasti except L. Sestius, who was consul suffectus in B. C. 23. Coins of the Sestia gene are extant, of which some specimens are given below.
Se'stius 1. P. SESTIUS CAPITOLINUS VATICANUS. consul B. C. 452, is spoken of under CAPITOLINUS [Vol. I. p. 606a.], where he is erroneously called Sextilius.
in the Capitoline Fasti, as L. SESTIUS VIBI N., P. F., whereas we know from Cicero that P. Sestius [No. 5] was the son of L. Sestius. It is, however, not impossible that the consul wished, like many other of the Roman nobles in the age of Augustus, to connect himself with the old Roman families, and therefore called himself the grandson of Vibius, because that was a praenomen in the old Sestia gens, as we see from the Capitoline Fasti, in which P. Sestius Capitolinus Vaticanus, consul in B. C. 452, is described as VIBI. N., P. F. The annexed coins refer apparently to this L. Sestius, as they were struck by a person of the same name who was the proquaestor of Bratus The obverse of the first represents a woman's head with L. SESTI PRO Q., and the reverse a tripod with a secespita on one side, and a simpuvium on the other, and the legend Q. CAEPIO BRVTVS PRO COS. The obverse of the second is nearly the same as the reverse of the first : the reverse contains a seat with a spear, in al
Vatica'nus an agnomen of T. Romilius Rocus, consul B. C. 455, and a member of the first decemvirate [ROMILIUS], and also of P. Sextius Capitolinus, consul B. C. 452, and likewise a member of the first decemvirate. [CAPITOLINUS, p. 606a.]
