a gem-engraver, and his brother Aulus, flourished probably in the time of Augustus.
There are several works of Aulus extant, but only a fragment of one by Quintus. From the manner in which their names appear on their works, ΑΥΛΟΣ ΑΛΕΞΑ ΕΠ., ΚΟΙΝΤΟΣ ΑΛΕΞ ΕΠΟΙΕΙ
, Winckelman and Sillig conclude that their father's name was Alexander; but Osann endeavours to prove that the second word stands for the genitive, not of Ἀλέξανδρος
, but of Ἀλεξᾶς
. (Bracci, fol. 8; Sillig, Cat. Art. s. v.;
Osann, in the Kunstblatt,
1830, p. 336.)
