What is the date of its destruction?[edit]

I have found a contradiction in the date and circumstances of the destruction of the original Aphrodite of Cnidus statue:

  • the article Aphrodite of Cnidus says that it "was lost in a fire during the Nika riots" which took place in 532
  • the article Palace of Lausus says - and cites two sources of this information - that the statue was destroyed by fire in 475.

Is there a source for the later date?

Cnidus or Knidos?[edit]

Why does the first sentence of the article call it Aphrodite of Knidos when Aphrodite of Knidos redirects to Aphrodite of Cnidus?
