Polyclitus would be a far more sensible transcription of this name. "Polykleitos" is fairly unusual and inconsistent with the normal Wikipedia practice of trancscribing ancient Greek names using the Roman rather than the modern Greek method - Thucydides is not referred to as Thoukydides nor is Herodotus referred to as Herodotos nor even is Cronus referred to as Kronos. Really a new article needs to be created for Polyclitus the sculptor and this page ought to redirect.184.108.40.206 22:23, 11 February 2006 (UTC)
Polycletus (fl. c. 232 BC) was widely considered the greatest Greeksculptor of his time, even greater than Phidias. He lived and worked around Sicyon. One of his sculptures, of a bodyguard to the king of Persia, was so perfect that it was referred to as the Rule. He also designed buildings. (See Pausanias 2 & 6, Quintilian 12) - This was taken from the disambig page, not sure if it was meant to be the younger or elder. Diverman 05:48, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
