PHILO
Form: Gr. Philon.
[The Athenian architect who built for Demutrius Phalereus, about 318 B.C., the portico to the great temple at Eleusis. It had 12 Doric columns in front, and its dimensions were 183 feet by 37 ½ feet (see plan on p. 211). Under the administration of Lycurgus, he constructed an armamentarium or arsenal at Zea in the Peiraeus, containing tackle, etc., for 400 ships (Pliny, N.H. vii 125). It was destroyed by Sulla (Plutarch, Sulla 14), but apparently rebuilt, since it is described by Valerius Maximus (viii 12, 2) as still existing (cp. Cic., De Or. i 62, and Strabo, p. 395 D). An inscription published in Hermes, 1882, p. 351, and in the Corpus Inscriptionum Atticarum, ii, no. 1054, contains the contract for the work, with full details of its structure and fittings.]
