Καλλίστρατος). A Greek rhetorician, who probably flourished in the third century A.D. He was the author of descriptions of fourteen statues of celebrated artists—Scopas, for instance, Praxiteles, and Lysippus, written after the manner of Philostratus. His style is dry and affected, and he gives the reader no real insight into the qualities of the masterpieces which he attempts to describe.
