Somis

*Sw=mis), the artist who made the bronze statue of Procles the son of Lycastidas, of Andros, an Olympic victor in the boys' wrestling. (Paus. 6.14.5. s. 13.) From the connection in which the passage stands in Pausanias, it may be inferred with probability, though not with certainty, that Somis was contemporary with Stomius about the beginning of the fifth century B. C. (Thiersch, Epochen, p. 202; comp. STOMIUS.)
