*Bru/acis), an Athenian statuary in stone and metal, cast a bronze statue of Seleucus. king of Syria (Plin. Nat. 34.8. s. 19), and, together with Scopas, Timotheus, and Leochares, adorned the Mausoleum with bas-reliefs. (Plin. Nat. 36.5. s. 4.) He must have lived accordingly B. C. 372-312. (Sillig. Catal. Art. s. v.) Besides the two works above mentioned, Bryaxis executed five colossal statues at Rhodes (Plin. Nat. 34.7. s. 18), an Asclepios (H. N. 34.8. s. 19), a Liber, father of Cnidus (H. N. 36.5), and a statue of Pasiphae. (Tatian. ad Graec. 54.) If we believe Clemens Alexandrinus (Protr. p. 30c.), Bryaxis attained so high a degree of perfection, that two statues of his were ascribed by some to Phidias.
