Aetion of Amphipolis

A Greek sculptor of Amphipolis, mentioned by Callimachus (Anth. Gr. ix. 336) and Theocritus (Epigr. vii.), from whom we learn that at the request of Nicias, a famous physician of Miletus, he executed a statue of Aesculapius in cedar wood. He flourished about the middle of the third century BC. There was an engraver of the same name; but when he lived is not known. (K. O. M├╝ller, Arch. der Kunst, p. 151.)
