Olympio'sth Enes

Ὀλυμπιοσθένης), a sculptor, whose country is unknown, made three of the statues of the Muses, which were set up on Mt. Helicon, and the other six of which were made by Cephisodotus and Strongylion. (Paus. 9.30.1.) It may safely be inferred that the three artists were contemporary; but, looking only at the passage of Pautisanias, it is doubtful whether the elder or the younger Cephisodotius is meant. It appears, however, from other evidence that Strongylion was a contemporary of Praxiteles, and therefore of the elder Cephisodotus. [STRONGYLION.] According to this, the date of Olympiosthenes would be about B. C. 370.
