Who is Alexandros of Antioch?
Alexandros of Antioch was an otherwise unknown artist of the Hellenistic age who is best known today for the Venus de Milo at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. He is known from several ancient inscriptions including one from a now missing plinth that was a part of the Venus de Milo but was removed and "lost" due to museum politics and national pride at the Louvre Museum in the 1820s. The inscription and the style of its lettering cast into doubt the claim that the statue was an original by the master sculptor Praxiteles from Attica.
