{Athenion.} ATHENION of Marona, Disciple of Glaucion, was a Man of very good Skill, and tho’ his Way of Colouring seem’d somewhat dry, and not altogether so agreeable (he not affecting the Gaudery of Colours) yet his Works were throughly Painted, and he maintain’d the full Vigour and Strength of his Lights and Shadows, which, with his unwearied Endeavours, and Re-search after every Thing that was Excellent and Worthy of his Knowledge in the ART, render’d him equal in Esteem with Pausius and Nicias, and had he not unhappily died in his Youth, in the Opinion they had of him, he had become a most excellent and extraordinary Man.
