Μυρμηκίδης), a sculptor and engraver, of Miletus or Athens, is generally mentioned in connection with Callicrates, like whom he was celebrated for the minuteness of his works. [CALLICRATES.] His works in ivory were so small that they could scarcely be seen without placing them on black hair. (Varro, L. L. vii., 9.62; Cic. Ac. 2.38; Suid. s. vv. Μυρμηκιδης and γελοῖος.)
