Damophon in Wikipedia
Damophon (2nd century BC) was an ancient Greek sculptor of the Hellenistic period from Messene, who executed many statues for the people of Messene, Megalopolis, Aegium and other cities of Peloponnesus. His statues were acroliths. Considerable fragments, including three colossal heads from a group by him representing Demeter, Persephone, Artemis and the Titan Anytus, were discovered on the site of Lycosura in Arcadia, where there was a sanctuary of the goddess Despoina, The Mistress. They were preserved in part in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens and partly at a small museum on the archaeological site. Damophon also restored Phidias' statue of the Greek god Zeus, which had been damaged in an earthquake.
