Chersiphron (fl.c.560 bc). Crete-born architect (with Theodoros of Samos) of the foundations and colonnades of the archaic Ionic temple of Artemis at Ephesus (c.565–550 bc). His son, Metagenes, continued the work and erected the entablature. These architects wrote a treatise (now lost) on the temple.
