Comment: There is a sad story behind this match: the inscription reads 'while fighting here in the stadion, I died, having prayed Zeus for either for the crown (i.e. for victory) or death, being 35 years old' (ἐνθάδε πυκτεύ/ων ἐν τῷ σταδίῳ ἐτε/λεύτα, εὐξάμενος / Ζηνὶ ἢ στέφος ἢ / θάνατον, ἐτῶν / λεʹ). As he was 35, he must have competed in the age category 'andres'.
