Abstract

We return to the issue of the statue that Phryne would have dedicated in Delphi sanctuary and that, according to some ancient writers, would have reproduced the hetaira herself. Only Diogenes Laërtius detaches himself from this tradition by stating that it was instead a simulacrum of Aphrodite. The reconsideration of the epigraph that would have been applied under the statue and of other clues about the monument lead us to give credence to this information.
