Callicrates

Callicrates. C5 bc Athenian architect, responsible with Ictinus for the Greek Doric temple known as the Parthenon (447–436), and on his own (probably) for the small Ionic temple of Nikè Apteros (c.450–424) on the Bastion outside the Propylaea. He supervised part of the construction of the walls between Athens and Piraeus, and may have restored the Athenian city-walls themselves.
