*Glauki/as), a statuary of Aegina, who made the bronze chariot and statue of Gelon, the son of Deinomenes, afterwards tyrant of Sycuse, in commemoration of his victory in the chariot race at Olympia, Ol. 73, B. C. 488. The following bronze statues at Olympia were also by Glaucias:--Philon, whose victory was recorded in the following epigram by Simonides, the son of Leoprepes,--
Πατρὶς μὲν Κορκύρα, φίλων δ᾽ ὄνομ᾽, εἰμὶ δὲ Γλαύκου

Υἱὸς, καὶ νίκη πὺξ δύ᾽ ὀλυμπιάδας:

Glaucus of Carystus, the boxer, practising strokes (σκιαμαχῶν); and Theagenes of Thasos, who conquered Euthymus in boxing in Ol. 75, B. C. 480 (Paus. 6.6.2). Glaucias therefore flourished B. C. 488-480 (Paus. 6.9.3, 10.1, 11.3).
