Ari'stophon

Ἀριστοφῶν), a painter of some distinction, the son and pupil of Aglaophon, and the brother of Polygnotus. He was also probably the father of the younger Aglaophon, and born at Thasos. Some of his productions are mentioned by Pliny (35.11. s. 40), and Plutarch (de audiend. Poet. 3). It is probably through a mistake that Plutarch (Plut. Alc. 16) makes him the author of a picture representing Alcibiades in the arms of Nemea. [See AGLAOPHON.]
