[German version]

(Ζηνᾶς/Zēnâs). Sculptor's name on two Roman portrait busts from the early 2nd cent. AD. The addition to the signature of the father's name Alexander (IG XIV 1241) in the one case and of β in the other (IG XIV 1242) suggests two different sculptors. The name points to a connection with sculptors from Aphrodisias (Aphrodisias [1], sculptors' school).


Loewy, Nr. 383 a-b

P. Moreno, s. v. Z., EAA 7, 1247 f.
