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.)
