Members of a family of artisans alternating the names Boethus and Athenaeon. Made portraits at *Lindus and *Delos between 184 and 126, a bronze *herm found in a ship wrecked off Mahdia in Tunisia (c.100), and a child strangling a goose (Plin. HN 34. 84), perhaps preserved in copy; also expensive couches and silver tableware. A bronze statue of Agon (Eros Enagonios) found in the Mahdia wreck may go with the herm. Not to be confused with either the sculptor (?) of the Elgin throne (Malibu, Getty Mus.) or Boethus son of Apollodorus of Carthage, known from a single signature from *Ephesus.
