an ancient painter of Corinth, mentioned among the inventors of that art by Pliny (Plin. Nat. 35.5) and Athenagoras. (Legat. pro Christ. 100.17). A picture by him representing the birth of Minerva was seen in the temple of Diana near the Alpheus. (Strab. viii. p.343b.; Athen. 8.346c.) This work was not, as Gerhard (Auserles. Vasenbilder, i. p. 12) says, confounding our artist with Ctesilochus (Plin. Nat. 35.40), in a ludicrous style, but rather in the severe style of ancient art.
