a statuary, one of whose productions is mentioned by Pliny (Plin. Nat. 34.14. s. 40
) as extant at Thebes in his time.
It was a statue of Athamas, in which bronze and iron had been mixed together, that the rust of the latter, showing through the brightness of the bronze, might have the appearance of a blush, and so might indicate the remorse of Athamas.
