Ancient Greek philosopher from 2nd century BC.

Callĭphon in Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities (Καλλιφῶν). A painter, a native of Samos, who decorated with pictures the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus. The subjects of his pieces were taken from the Iliad (Pausan. v. 19).

Calliphon in Wikipedia Calliphon (or Callipho, Greek: Καλλιφῶν; 2nd century BC) was a Greek philosopher, who probably belonged to the Peripatetic school and lived in the 2nd century BC.[1] He is mentioned several times and condemned by Cicero as making the chief good of man to consist in a union of virtue (Latin: honestas) and bodily pleasure (Greek: ἡδονή, Latin: voluptas), or, as Cicero says, in the union of the human with the beast.[2]
