1. A statuary of the school of Lysippus. [SILANION, p. 818b.] An interesting confirmation of the truth of the reading of Pliny, adopted in the article referred to, is farnished by an extant inscription on the base of a statue of the orator Hyperides, which was published by Spon, (Miscell.
p. 137) in the form ΤΕΥΣΙΑΛΗΣ ΕΠΟΙΕΙ
(whence Sillig makes an artist Teusiules, Cutal. Artif. s. v.
); but the true reading, ΖΕΥΞΙΑΔΗΣ
, has been established by Visconti (Icon. Grecq.
vol. i. p. 272), and adopted by Welcker (Kunstblatt,
1827, No. 82, pp. 326-- 327) and Raoul-Rochette (Lettre à M. Schorn,
p. 413, 2nd ed.).
The date of Hyperides (B. C. 396-322) agrees with that which must be assigned to Zeuxiades on the testimony of Pliny. [See SILANION.]
