*Xruso/qemis) and EUTE'LIDAS (Ευτελίδας), statuaries of Argos, made in bronze the statues of Damaretus and his son Theopompus, who were each twice victorious in the Olympic games. The victories of Demaretus were in the 65th and 66;th Olympiads, and the artists of course lived at the same time (B. C. 520 and onwards). Pausanias describes one of the statues, and quotes the inscription, which contained the names of the artists, and which described them as Τέχναν εἰδότες ἐκ προτέπων, which appears to mean that, like the early artists in general, they each belonged to a family in which art was hereditary. (10.6.2.)
