Micon

3. A statuary of Syracuse, the son of Niceratus, made two statues of Hiero II. at Olympia, one on horseback, the other on foot. They were made after the death of Hiero, by command of his sons. (Paus. 6.12.4.) The artist must therefore have flourished after B. C. 215. He may safely be assumed to be the same as the statuary of whom Pliny says, Micon athletis spectatur. (H. N. 34.8. s. 19.30.)
