Table of Contents:
1 Or Temple of the Nymphs. The daughter of Butades is called "Core" by Athenagoras.
2 See B. xxxiv. c. 3.
3 Son of Philæus. He is mentioned by Pausanias, B. viii. c. 14, and by Herodotus, B. iii. c. 60, as the architect of a fine temple at Samos, and, with Smilis and Theodorus, of the Labyrinth at Lemnos.
4 Mentioned also in B. xxxiv. c. 19. Pliny is in error here in using the word "plastice;" for it was the art of casting brass, and not that of making plaster casts, that these artists invented.
5 See Chapter 5 of this Book. He is said by Dionysius of Halicarnassus, B. iii., to have been a member of the family of the Bacchiadæ.
6 A different person, probably, from the one of the same name mentioned in B. vii. c. 56.
7 Terra cotta figures.
