Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting in the first instance on the mention of P. in Lycurgus fr. 44 Conomis. See also Photius, Lexicon pi1035 Theodoridis.
For Polygnotus (C5 BCE) see generally OCD4 s.v.; for the Stoa Poikile see pi 1469, with further references there.
[1] The transmitted text, in all the lexica, is 'in the treasury'; this is Valckenaer's (standard) emendation.
