This page is on the sculptor Thrasymedes of Paros. For the mythological Greek captain of the Trojan Wars, see Thrasymedes (mythology).

Thrasymedes of Paros was an ancient Greek sculptor. Formerly he was regarded as a pupil of Pheidias, because he set up in the temple of Asclepius at Epidaurus a seated statue of that deity made of ivory and gold, which was evidently a copy of the Zeus of Pheidias. But an inscription found at Epidaurus proves that the temple and the statue belong to the 4th century.[citation needed]
