Myron

1309 T-2. Discovered 1973 Sept. 29 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Myron of Eleutherae (fl. 470 B.C.) in Attica, one of the most celebrated Greek artists, was a pupil of Ageladus and an older contemporary of Phidias {see planet (4753)} and Polyclitus. His works, mostly in bronze, include his statue of the 'Argive runner Ladas' and the Discobolus (discus-thrower), several marble copies of which are known. (M 20160)
