338 BC

Leochares of Athens
He cooperated with Bryaxis, Scopas, and Timotheos in the decoration of the mausoleum at Halicarnassus in Caria. His name is found in several inscriptions at Athens. After the battle of Chaironeia (338 B.C.) he attached himself to the court of Philip II of Macedon. A marble statuette of Ganymede in the Vatican is supposed to be a copy of an original by Leochares.
