Comment: Dionysodoros was on an embassy with his Thessalian compatriots to the king of Persia, Darius (before 336/335 BC). He fell in the hands of the Macedonians after the battle of Issus, but was released because of his Olympic victory. This gives an approximate date range for his Olympic victory. Moretti 1957, no. 441 suggests the 107th Olympiad (= 352 BC).
