Aristocles of Cydonia was one of the most ancient sculptors; and though his age could not be clearly fixed, it was certain that he flourished before Zancle was called Messene (Paus. v. 25.6), that is, before 494 B. C.

Krisilas, Kresilas, Cresilas, 5th c. B.C.
The school of Phidias had rivals in the naturalistic school which followed Myron, including his son, Lycius, and Cresilas of Cydonia

Kresilas of Kydonia in Crete (not necessarily identical with the "Ctesilaus"
who "made a Doryphoros and a wounded Amazon": Pliny in N.H. 34.75) is often given
the Sciarra type, though his style is only known from the Perikles portrait (Ch.
6.3) if the copies we have indeed reproduce the statue noted by Pliny, N.H. 34.74
and Pausanias (1.28.2 -- but omitting the sculptor). "Cydon" probably repeats
Kresilas's own ethnic, a slip which may have eliminated another name (Strongylion,
whose Amazon is praised by Pliny in N.H. 34.82?); while Phradmon of Argos is known
for three other works, all lost.
