2. Of Mende, in Thrace, a statuary and sculptor, of whom we have but little information, but whose celebrity may be judged of from the fact, that he executed the statues in the pediment of the front portico of the temple of Zeus at Olympia, those in the pediment of the portico of the opisthodomus being entrusted to Alcamenes (Paus. 5.10). He also made the bronze statue of Nike, which the Messenians of Naupactus dedicated at Olympia. (Paus. 10.26.1.) He must have flourished about the 86th Olympiad, B. C. 435. (See further, Sillig, Catal. Art. s. u. ; Müller, Archäol. de Kunst, § 112. n. 1. 119, n. 2.)
