Pythagoras of Rhegion (Greek sculptor, active ca. 475-450 BCE)

Note: Although ancient writers say that there were two sculptors named Pythagoras, one from Rhegion and another from Samos, that were contemporaries identical in appearance, modern scholars generally equate the two, supposing that Pythagoras was among the Samians who migrated to Zankle-Messana in 494 BCE and became subject to Anaxilas of Rhegion. Ancient authors credited him with victory monuments for Olympic and Pythian athletes, a statue of the citharode Kleon of Thebes, and various mythological works. No copies of his works, all bronzes, have been identified with certainty, although a statue base for the victor Euthymos at Olympia preserves the name Pythagoras of Samos. He was noted for evoking pathos (i.e. his statue of a lame man at Syracuse that was said to arouse sympathetic pain in the viewer) and Pliny claimed that he was the first to represent sinews and veins and to pay attention to the treatment of hair.
