Σμῖλις). The son of Euclides, of Aegina, a sculptor of the legendary period in Greece, whose name appears to be derived from σμίλη, a knife for carving wood, and afterwards a sculptor's chisel. Smilis is the legendary head of the Aeginetan School of sculpture, just as Daedalus is the legendary head of the Attic and Cretan Schools (Pausan. vii. 4, 4).
