1. A surname of Artemis, derived from the town of Leucophrys in Phrygia, where, as well as at Magnesia on the Maeander, she had a splendid temple. (Xenoph. Hellen.
3.2.19; Strab. xiv. p.647
; Tac. Ann. 3.62
; Athen. 15.683
The sons of Themistocles dedicated a statue to her on the Acropolis at Athens, because Themistocles had once ruled at Magnesia. (Paus. 1.26.4
; Thuc. 1.138
; Plut. Themist.
There was also a statue of her at Amyclae, which had been dedicated by the Magnesian Bathycles. (Paus. 3.18.6
.) Her temple at Magnesia had been built by Hermogenes, who had also written a work upon it. (Vitruv. vii. Praef. 3, 1.)
