Who was Herostratus?

Greek hero
Ionian Revolt's chief
sacrilegious person never to be mention of
Greek architect, Daedalus main rival
Herostratus was a 4th-century BC Greek arsonist, who sought notoriety by destroying the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. His acts prompted the creation of a damnatio memoriae law, forbidding anyone to mention his name. Nevertheless, his name has become a metonym for someone who commits a criminal act in order to become noted.
