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.
