an Athenian sculptor, of unknown date, whose name is inscribed upon a large vase of Parian marble, beautifully sculptured with figures in high relief, representing Hermes giving the infant Dionysus to the Nymphs to educate. This vase was found at Cormia, on the Gulf of Gaeta, and was applied to use as a font in the cathedral of Gaeta, but was afterwards removed to the Neapolitan Museum, where it now is. (Gruter, Thes. Inscr. p. lxxvii. No. 7; Spon, Miscellan. vol. 2.1, p. 25; Mus. Borbon. ; Nagler, Kiinstler-Lexicon, s. v.)
