Comment: For the dating I generally follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.58 and p. 119 note 277, who in turn follows Moretti (1957), no. 360 who dates Antiochos' Olympian victory to 400 B.C. Paus. 6.3.9 tells us that one Antiochos from Lepreon won the Olympian games as a pankratiatist, age category men, as well as two victories at both the Isthmian and Nemean games in the pentathlon. Also mentioned in Xenophon's Hellenica 7.1.33. - PK
