Trophon or Grophon is supposed to have been the maker of the statue of Ecphanto, the daughter of Zeus, the inscription belonging to which we still possess, namely, the well-known Melian inscription. The last word of the inscription is TROPÊON, where it is not quite clear whether the first letter is T or G, but most scholars take it for the later. (Welcker. Rhein. Mus. 1848, 383.)
