Chalco'sthenes

2. A statuary at Athens, who made statues in unburnt clay (cruda opera, Plin. Nat. 35.12. s. 45). The statement of Pliny, that the Cerameicus was so called from his place of work having been in it, though incorrect, seems however to point out the great antiquity of the artist. It is possible, but not very probable, that the two passages of Pliny refer to the same person.
