Deinocrates (fl. mid-C4 bc). Hellenistic architect, supposedly the designer of the city of Alexandria, laid out on the most lavish lines. He was reported by Vitruvius to have proposed reconstructing Mount Athos into a gigantic carved image of Alexander the Great. He may have been (with Paeonius) the architect of the last great Ionic temple of Artemis at Ephesus (from 356 bc).
Vitruvius Pollio (1955–6)
