ANTENOR, an Athenian sculptor, of the latter part of the
6th centuryB.C. He was the author of the group of the tyrannicides
Harmodius and Aristogeiton, set up by the Athenians on
the expulsion of the Peisistratidae, and carried away to Persia
by Xerxes. A basis with the signature of Antenor, son of
Eumares, has been shown to belong to one of the dedicated
female figures of archaic style which have been found on the
Acropolis of Athens.
