Antenor (Greek: Ἀντήνωρ; fl. c. 540 – c. 500 BC) was an Athenian sculptor, of the latter part of the 6th century BC. He was named after the mythological figure also called Antenor. He was the creator of the joint statues of the tyrannicides Harmodius and Aristogeiton, set up by the Athenians on the expulsion of Hippias. These statues were carried away by Xerxes I of Persia during the Greco-Persian Wars. A basis with the signature of Antenor, son of Eumares, has been shown to belong to one of the dedicated female figures of archaic style which have been found on the acropolis of his native city.
