2. A sculptor of the same name, whom M. Raoul-Rochette considers to be undoubtedly a different person, has been made known by a marble found near Albano, with the inscription, ΤΕΙΣΙΚΡΑΤΗΣ ΕΠΟΙΕΙ
. (Visconti, Op. Var.
vol. ii. p. 82; R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn,
p. 419, 2d ed.) Perhaps, however, the work may be only a marble copy of a bronze statue by the celebrated Tisicrates.
The orthography deserves notice : there are other examples of names beginning with the root TI, in both of the derived forms TIM and ΤΙΣ
, being spelt with the diphthong EI. (See Pape, Wörterbuch d. Griech. Eigennamen.)
