Cleon of Sicyon, a sculptor pupil of Antiphanes, who had been taught by Periclytus, a follower of the great Polycletus of Argos. (Paus. v. 17. § 1.) Cleon's age is determined by two bronze statues of Zeus at Olympia executed after Olympiad. 98, and another of Deinolochus, after Olympiad.102. (Paus. vi. 1. § 2.) He excelled in portrait-statues (Philosophos, Plin. H. N. xxxiv. 19, is to be taken as a general term), of which several athletic ones are mentioned by Pausanias. (vi. 3. § 4, 8. § 3, 9. § 1, 10, fin.)
