Aetion

Aetion, was a Greek painter of the 4th century BC.

He was the painter of Alexander and Roxanna's wedding (around 327 BC), in which for the first time flying Cupids were drawn.

This has inaugurated a fashion that influenced the entire Alexandrian period.

The above-mentioned painting was presented by the author at the Olympic Games, and its success was so overwhelming that the president of the Games married his daughter to Aetion.
