Phi'locles

2. An Athenian architect, of Acharnae, who is not mentioned by any ancient author, but who must have been one of the chief architects of the best period of Greek art, for he was the architect of the beautiful Ionic temple of Athena Polias, in Ol. 111, B. C. 336-332, as we learn from the celebrated inscription relating to the building of the temple, which was found in the Acropolis, and is now in the British Museum. (Böckh, Corp. Inscr. vol. i. No. 160, where Böckh enters into an elaborate and valuable discussion of all that is known of the temple.)
