Cra'terus

a sculptor of the first century after Christ, whose statues, executed together with Pythodorus, were much admired, and were regarded as a great ornament of the palace of the Caesars. (Plin. Nat. 36.4 ยง 11.) The words "palatinas domos Caesarum," in that passage, compared with the preceding ones, "Titi Imperatoris domo," are to be understood of the imperial palaces on the Palatine hill, and fix the date of Craterus to the time of the first emperors.
