Synopsis - The Sculptor of Melos
In Melos, the ancient city of the Greeks, on a hill’s crest, sat the house of Philotius the sculptor. King Memiades had made the promise of a splendid prize to anyone who should carve a statue worthy of holding the palce of honor in his theatre. A score of sculptors vied with each other for the glory. Until the judges had passed upon the winning work, no other eye might look upon it.
