Some of those in the frieze identified from entries in Wikipedia: Rhœcus was a "Samian sculptor of the 6th century BCE. He and his son Theodorus were especially noted for their work in bronze." "Ictinus was an architect active in the mid 5th century BC. Ancient sources identify Ictinus and Callicrates as co-architects of the Parthenon."
