THRASYMEDES, of Paros, a Greek sculptor. Formerly he was regarded as a pupil of Pheidias, because he set up in the temple of Asclepius at Epidaurus a seated statue of that deity made of ivory and gold, which was evidently a copy of the Zeus of Pheidias. But an inscription recently found at Epidaurus proves that the temple and the statue belong to the fourth century. (See EPIDAURUS.)
