Polykleitos the Younger

Polykleitos the Younger (circa. 4th Century) was a Greek sculptor of athletes. His greatest achievements, however, were as an architect.

A renowned sculptor, Polykleitos the Younger was architect of the Tholos at Epidauros. Started around 365 B. C., the Tholos exhibited elaborate detailing, especially on the Corinthian capitals of its interior columns. These columns would influence most later designs for that order.

The Theater at Epidauros designed around 360 B. C. is also attributed to Polykleitos the Younger. Typical of theaters of the fourth century B. C., it seated more than twelve thousand spectators. Much of its original form exists today.

He was the son of the Classical Greek sculptor Polykleitos the Elder.
