Εὐβουλίδης), a statuary, who made a great votive offering, consisting of a group of thirteen statues, namely, Athena, Paeonia, Zeus, Mnemosyne, the Muses, and Apollo, which he dedicated at Athens, in the temple of Dionysus, in the Cerameicus. (Paus. 1.2.4.) Pliny mentions his statue of one counting on his fingers (34.8, s. 19.29, according to Harduin's emendation). Eubulides had a son, EUCHEIR.

In the year 1837 the great group of Eubulides in the Cerameicus was discovered. Near it was a fragment of an inscription ... ΧΕΙΡΟΣ ΚΡΩΠΙΔΗΣ ΕΠΟΙΗΣΕΝ. Another inscription was found near the Erechtheum, ...]ΧΕΙΡ ΚΑΙ ΕΥΒΟΥΛΙΔΗΣ ΚΡΩΠΙΔΑΙ ΕΠΟΙΗΣΑΝ. (Böckh, Corp. Inscr. i. p. 504, No. 666, comp. Add. p. 916.) From a comparison of these inscriptions with each other and with Pausanias (8.14.4), it may be inferred that the first inscription should be thus completed: -- ΕΥΒΟΥΛΙΔΗΣ ΕΥΧΕΙΡΟΣ ΚΡΩΠΙΔΗΣ ΕΠΟΙΗΣΕΝ, and that there was a family of artists of the Cropeian demos, of which three generations are known, namely, Eubulides, Eucheir, Eubulides. The architectural character of the monument and the forms of the letters, alike shew that these inscriptions must be referred to the time of the Roman dominion in Greece. (Ross, in the Kunstblatt, 1837, No. 93,&c.) Thiersch comes to a like conclusion on other grounds. (Epoehen, p. 127.)
