Comment: Contest place neither mentioned nor obvious. However, Sève states that he won the contest at Epidauros by listing him in the list of the victors at Epidauros. Originally from Rhodes, but Paus. 6.7.4 attests Dorieus was also proclaimed 'as from Thurii' since he fled there from Rhodes from political enemies. Also mentioned in Syll.3 82 = IAG 23. I generally follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.56 and p. 118 notes 273-4. Dorieus' victories can be reasonably safely dated: he won 3 Olympic, 4 Pythian, 8 Isthmian, 7 Nemean victories, and following IAG 23 also 4 times in the Panathenaea, 4 times in the Asclepiaea, 3 times in the Hecatomboia and 3 times in the Lycaea. Dorieus was a pankratiatist. - PK
