All these features must have made some statues appealing enough to move men to make love to them. 18 The most famous episode of agalmatophilia in the ancient world dates also to the early third century. It is recounted in the treatise Peri Knidou by Posidippus, probably the homonymous epigrammist of Pella, who was interested in works of art and whose activity dates to around 285–265. 20 In an undated incident reported by Aelian (early third century ce), a young nobleman fell deeply in love with a statue of Good Fortune which stood near the Prytaneum at Athens.

Gyges’ ring,20 which made its wearer invisible, is at present also invisible to researchers. Notes 1 The basic work is still Bonner 1950. Further important publications are Mouterde 1930: 53– 137; Delatte and Derchain 1964; Philipp 1986; Zwierlein-Diehl 1992. 2 Brashear 1995. , pp. 3440–3. 4 See the glossaries of Riederer and Ullrich in Philipp 1986: 27–46, and Zwierlein-Diehl 1991: 41–9. 5 On distinguishing examples made of glass and those made of precious stone: Raederer in Philipp 1986: 141–3.

This suggests that this phenomenon disappeared as a result of his public teachings. 24 ANCIENT GREEK SCULPTORS AS MAGICIANS How did the personality of a deity enter into his or her statue? As I see it, this was effected through magic. Meleager (fl. 100 bce) seems to allude to this process in an epigram on the Eros of Thespiae by Praxiteles: Praxiteles the ancient creator of living beings fashioned a delicate statue, but working stone into shape, he in reality created a lifeless, speechless figure of beautiful form (agalma/apsukhon).
