TIMANTHES
A Greek painter, from the island of Cythnus, flourished about 400 B.C.; celebrated by the ancients for his genius no less than for his art. The most admired of his works was his painting of the Sacrifice of Iphigenia, in which the expression of the different degrees of sympathetic grief and mourning was brought out in a masterly manner. The face of Agamemnon was hidden in a mantle; a striking way of representing the father's untold anguish. [Cicero, Orator 74; Pliny, H. N. xxxv 73; Quintilian, ii 13 § 12; Valerius Maximus, viii 11 § 6. The same device is adopted in the mural painting from Pompeii reproduced under IPHIGENIA.]
