Isido'rus

artists.

1. A sculptor, of uncertain time and country, known by his statue of Hercules at Parium, on the Propontis. (Plin. Nat. 34.8. s. 19.16.) This is according to the common text of Pliny, which is, however, almost certainly corrupt. See HEGESIAS, p. 368b.

Some years ago the base of a statue, inscribed with the name of Isidorus, was dug up in the forum at Cumae. (Raoul-Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, p. 79.)

2, 3. Of Miletus, the elder and younger, were eminent architects in the reign of Justinian. The elder of them was associated with Anthemius of Tralles, in the rebuilding of the great church of St. Sophia, at Constantinople, before A. D. 537. The younger Isidorus rebuilt the dome of St. Sophia, after it had been destroyed by an earthquake, A. D. 554, and made some additions to the interior of the church. (Procop. 1.1; Agathias, 5.9; Malalas, p. 81; Müller, Archäol. d. Kunst, § 194, n. 4 ; Kugler, Kunstgeschichte, p. 360, &c.)
