Copo'nius

a Roman sculptor, author of the fourteen statues of nations conquered by Pompey, which were placed at the entrance of the porticoes belonging to the theatre of Pompey at Rome, which gave to this entrance-hall the name of Porticus ad Nationes. This was built by Pompey himself, and afterwards restored by Augustus. (Plin. Nat. 36.4. ยงยง 12, 13; Suet. Cl. 46; Serv. ad Virg.
