People - Ancient Greece: Pamphilus
Ancient Macedonian painter, who lived in 4th century BC.

Pamphĭlus in Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities (1898) Pamphilus of Amphipolis (Ancient Greek: Πάμφιλος, 4th century BC) was a Macedonian[1] distinguished painter and head of Sicyonian school. He was the disciple of Eupompus, the founder of the Sicyonian school of painting , for the establishment of which, however, Pamphilus seems to have done much more than even Eupompus himself. Of his own works we have mostly scanty accounts; but as a teacher of his art he was surpassed by none of the ancient masters. Among those who paid price for his tuition were Melanthius, Pausias and Apelles the famous painter of Alexander the Great.
