Phileu'menos

*Fileu/menos), a sculptor, whose name was for the first time discovered in 1808. in an inscription on the support of the left foot of a statue in the Villa Albani, where there is also another statue evidently by the same hand Zoega, to whom we owe the publication of the artist's name, supposes that these statues, which are of Pentelic marble, belong to the Attic school of sculpture, in the age of Hadrian. (Zoega's Leben, vol. ii. p. 366; Welcker, Kunstblatt, 1827, pp. 330, 331 R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, pp. 380, 381.)
