*Furo/maxos), an Athenian sculptor of the Cephissean demus, whose name occurs on an inscription discovered at Athens in 1835, as the maker of the bas-reliefs on the frieze of the celebrated temple of Athena Polias, which was built in Ol.91, B. C. 416-412 (Schöll, Archäologische Mittheilungen aus Griechenland, p. 125 ; R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, p. 386, 2d ed.). There are also passages of the ancient writers, in which mention is made of one or more artists under the names of Phylomachus, Phyromachus, and Pyromachus, three names which might evidently be easily confounded. It will be more convenient to examine these passages under the article PYROMACHUS, as that is the form in which most of them give the name, and as the above inscription is the only case in which we can be quite certain that Phyromachus is the right form.
