Hylas

a famous pantomime, who acquired a great reputation at Rome in the time of Augustus. He was a disciple of Pylades, the greatest master in his art at the time; but Hylas showed such talent and skill, that the Roman public could not decide which of the two was the greater. (Suet. Aug. 45; Macr. 2.7.)
