Antenor (Greek: Ἀντήνωρ, Antḗnōr; fl. c. 540 – c. 500 BC)[1] was an Athenian sculptor. He is recorded as the creator of the joint statues of the tyrannicides Harmodius and Aristogeiton funded by the Athenians on the expulsion of Hippias.[2][3] These statues were carried away to Susa by Xerxes I of Persia during the Greco-Persian Wars.[4] Archaeologists have also established that a basis signed by "Antenor son of Eumares" belonged to a set of female figures in an archaic style which were displayed in the acropolis.[3] The sculptor of the Harmodius and Aristogeiton is usually listed as the son of Euphranor.[4]
