Sophocles, ed. A. C. Pearson, ii.94ff., frag. 442-451. The subject is
rendered famous by the fine group of ancient statuary now in the Uffizi gallery at
Florence. See Baumeister,
Denkmäler des klassischen Altertums, iii.1674ff.
Antiquity hesitated whether to assign the group to Scopas or Praxiteles
（Pliny, Nat. Hist. xxxvi.28）, and modern opinion is
still divided on the question. See Frazer on Paus. ii.29.9 （vol. iii. p.
201）. The pathetic character of the group may perhaps be held to speak
