EUCHEIR

ΕΥΧΕΙΡ

Is one of those names of Grecian artists, which are first used in the mythological period, on account of their significancy, but which were afterwards given to real persons. Eucheir, a relation of Daedalus, and the inventor of painting in Greece, according to Aristotle, is no doubt only a mythical personage. (Plin. vii. 56.)
