Λεύκων), a sculptor of an unknown date. A dog by him is mentioned in an epigram by Macedonius (Brnnck, Anal. vol. iii. p. 118, No. 27, Anth. Pal. 6.173), in terms which imply that it was a first-rate work. Winckelmann (Gesch. d. Kunst, b. 5.6.23) conjectures that this is the dog, in a sitting posture, in marble, which was discovered at Rome, and brought to England. In Meyer's note on the passage of Winckelmann, it is stated that the statue was purchased by a gentleman named Duncombe, in Yorkshire.
