Trophonius and Agamades are said to have been the sons of a Boeotian King. They built the renowned Temple of Apollo, at Delphos. Cicero relates, that after they had completed this magnificent work, they prayed the God to reward them with whatever was best for man; three days after, they were found dead. 1250. Dcedalus was an Athenian of the royal family, who built the famous Labyrinth in the Island of Crete, and many other edifices in various places. 1200. Hermogenes built the Temple of Bacchus, at Teos, in the Ionic order, remains of which are still seen. Vitruvius calls him the father of pure architecture. 700. Rhoscus and Theodorus, of Saraos, rebuilt the famous Temple of Juno, of the Doric order, at Samos. Theodorus was also a sculptor. * Taken principally from Milizia. The chronology is not supposed to be perfectly acurate. 650. Eupalinus, of Megara, constructed a magnificent aqueduct at Samos, and other immense buildings, the ruins of which are remaining. 550. Pieras built a city in Crete, and adding a letter to his name, called it Aptera. Spinthcerus, of Corinth, rebuilt the Temple of Apollo, at Delphi, which had been destroyed by fire. Ctesiphon designed and commenced the famous Temple of Diana, at Ephesus. 540. Metagams, his son, carried on the Temple; he invented ingenious machines to carry the immense columns from the quarry, eight miles distant, safely to the temple. To this famous edifice all Greece, and her colonies, contributed for the space of two hundred years, when it was burnt by Erostratus. 500. Gitiades, of Sparta, constructed there the Brazen Temple of Minerva. Chirosqphus, of Crete, built a number of temples at Tegea....
