Bryaxis (brĪăkˈsĭs) [key], 4th cent. B.C., Greek sculptor. With Scopas, Leochares, and Timotheus, he worked on the sculptures of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (c.350 B.C.). Among other works attributed to him were several statues, including one of Apollo in the grove of Daphne, near Antioch. In 1891 at Athens his signature was discovered on a base for a tripod. The base is sculptured in relief with figures of horsemen.
