Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Aristocles is a name attributed to two sculptors in Ancient Greece, as well as a nominal hereditary school of sculpture, started by the elder Aristocles, known to us primarily through different passages in Pausanias. Aristocles of Cydonia was one of the most ancient sculptors; and though his age cannot be clearly fixed, it is certain that he flourished before Zancle was called Messene, that is, before 494 BC. He was called both a Cydonian and a Sicyonian, probably because he was born at Cydonia and practiced and taught his art in Sicyon. Aristocles of Sicyon was the grandson of the above, as well as the pupil and son of Cleoetas, and brother of Canachus. He was not much inferior to his father in reputation. This Aristocles had a pupil, Synnoon, who was the father and teacher of Ptolichus of Aegina. We are also told, in an epigram by Antipater Sidonius that this Aristocles made one of three statues of the Muses, the other two of which were made by Ageladas and Canachus.
