Event: Straton or Stratonikos son of Korrhagos from Alexandria (Egypt)

Record ID 3483
Person Straton or Stratonikos son of Korrhagos from Alexandria in Egypt
Contest Olympia in Olympia (Elis)
Date -64 - -64
Achievement V
Comment: According to Aelian, Straton won the pale and pankration at the Olympia on the same day, and won again at the Olympia the next time it was celebration. As his first two victories can be dated to the 178th olympiad (i.e. 68 BCE, based on Africanus, Eusebius, and Pausanias), this victory must be dated to 64 BCE. Given the athlete's other victories, a victory in combat sports or equestrian events is likely.
