1. A sculptor from the island of Paros, who assisted Phidias in executing the colossus of Zeus at Olympia, and left several beautiful works, principally in gold and ivory, in Elis, where he seems to have lived in banishment. He appears to belong to Ol. 84, &c. (B. C. 444), and is praised for his statues of philosophers. (Strab. viii. p.337; Plin. Nat. 34.19, 35.34; Paus. 5.20.1; Eustath. ad Il. 2.603; Böckh, Corp. Inscr. n. 24.)
