Just at the moment of starting a helot approached him with a small roll directed to "Zeuxis, the unrivaled painter of Greece."
I admire also Sophocles as a tragedian, Polycleitus as a sculptor, and Zeuxis as a painter.
The correctness of Parrhasius succeeded to the genius of Zeuxis.
Some birds flew to the grapes of Zeuxis, and began to pick at them.
In the Temple of Hercules, there was another picture by Zeuxis.
The Helen of Zeuxis was painted from five of the most beautiful women of Croton.
What Zeuxis, the famous painter, said of his work, may much more truly be said of ours: "I paint for eternity."
The expression of Pliny was therefore a just one, that Zeuxis had given great glory to the brush.
The laurel and the palm were brought—and there, in the presence of assembled thousands, Zeuxis crowned the young Ephesian.
The grapes of Zeuxis did not need this power of action to tempt the birds as did the boy in order to frighten them.
