Diony'sius

artists.

1. Of Argos, a statuary, who was employed together with Glaucus in making the works which Smicythus dedicated at Olympia. This fixes the artist's time; for Smicythus succeeded Anaxilas as tyrant of Rhegium in B. C. 476. The works executed by Dionysius were statues of Contest (Ἀγών) carrying ἁλτῆρες (Dict. of Ant. s. v.), of Dionysius, of Orpheus, and of Zeus without a beard. (Paus. 5.26. §§ 3-6.) He also made a horse and charioteer in bronze, which were among the works dedicated at Olympia by Phormis of Maenalus, the contemporary of Gelon and Hiero. (Paus. 5.27.1.)
