C. 455, and that he came to Athens about or soon after the beginning of the Peloponnesian War. He must have been in Macedonia, at the court of Archelaüs, soon after B. C. 413. He must have spent some time in Magna Graecia, as we learn from the story respecting the picture of Helen, which he painted for the city of Croton ; and it is also probable that he visited Sicily, as we are told that one of those inestimable p
