There is Leucippus brother of Aphareus, Hilaeira and Phoebe, and with them Arsinoe. Asclepius too is represented, being according to the Messenian account a son of Arsinoe, also Machaon and Podaleirius, as they also took part in the affair at Troy. These pictures were painted by Omphalion, pupil of Nicias1 the son of Nicomedes. Some say that he was also a slave in the house of Nicias and his favorite.
1 See Paus. 3.19.4. Nothing further is known of his pupil Omphalion.
