a painter of the Sicyonian school, contemporary with Aratus, whose portrait he painted, with a trophy (Plin. Nat. 35.11. s. 40.35). It seems almost idle to inquire which of the victories of Aratus this picture was intended to celebrate. Harduin quotes Plutarch (Plut. Arat. 38, fol.), as making it probable that the victory referred to was that over Aristippus, the tyrant of Argos. This would place the painter's date about B. C. 235.
