Question: Famous Greek Builders!?
Are there any famous Ancient Greek builders that anybody knows about!?

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
"The Parthenon was built under the general supervision of the sculptor Phidias, who also had charge of the sculptural decoration!. The architects, Iktinos and Kallikrates, began in 447 BC, and the building was substantially completed by 432, but work on the decorations continued until at least 431!."

"The Temple of Athena Nike is a tetrastyle (four column) Ionic structure with a colonnaded portico at both front and rear facades (amphiprostyle), designed by the architect Kallikrates!."
