Alci'machus

a painter mentioned by Pliny. (H. N. 35.11. s. 40.) He is not spoken of by any other writer, and all that is known about him is, that he painted a picture of Dioxippus, a victor in the pancratium at Olympia. Dioxippus lived in the time of Alexander the Great. (Aelian, Ael. VH 10.22; Diod. 17.100 ; Athen. 6.251a.) Alcimachus therefore probaby lived about the same time.
