Comment: I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.13 and p. 103 note 208 for the dating, with reference to a scholiast's remark on Theocritus IV and Moretti (1953), no. 115. An unattributed victor list which is attributed to Sextius Julius Africanus (Ol. 62) mentions Milon has having won six victories in wrestling at the Olympia, six at the Pythia, ten at the Isthmia and nine at the Nemea. Farrington is contradictory in his book about the Isthmian victories: stating at no. 1.13 Milo won 10 times the Isthmian Games and in his note 208 saying he won 6 times. I have followed the description of Africanus - PK/YP
