Poseido'nius

of Ephesus, a celebrated silver-chaser, who was contemporary with Pasiteles, in the time of Pompey. (Plin. Nat. 33.12. s. 55.) Pliny mentions him also among the artists who made athletes et armatos et venatores sacrificantesque, and adds to the mention of his name the words qui et argentum caelavit nobiliter (H. N. 34.8. s. 19.34). Nagler (K√ľnstler-Lexicon) makes the singular mistake of ascribing to him the sphere of the celebrated philosopher Poseidonius, which is mentioned by Cicero (de Nat. Deor. 2.34).
