346 BC

Philon was included by Varro among the seven greatest architects of Greece. His best known building was the arsenal at the Peirĉus (the port of Athens). This building was erected between 346 and 328 B.C., and was burned by the Roman general Sulla. Philon wrote books on proportion and a description of the arsenal. An inscription has been found giving an accurate description of this building.
