Thrason

statuarry, mentioned by Strabo (xiv. p.641), who) saw several of his works in the temple of Artemis at Ephesus, and, among them, statues of Penelope and Euryeleia. He is probably the same artist whose name occurs in Pliny's list of those who made athletas et armatos et renatores sacrificantesque. (H. N. 34.8. s. 19.34.)

There is an extant inscription in which mention is made of a statue dedicated to Artemis, the work of Straton of Pellene. From the form of the letters of the inscription, Böckh supposes its date to be not earlier than the reign of Trajan or of Hadrian, in which case, of course, the artist must have been a different person from the Thrason mentioned by Strabo and Pliny. (Böckh, C. I. No. 1823, vol. ii. p. 9; R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, p. 418, 2d. ed.)
