Age Category andres

Achievement V
Comment: This is the second time the athlete competes (and wins) in the stadion, and the enoplios dromos of the Eleutheria, and he is proclaimed 'the best of the Greeks, the first and the only one' also for the second time. He furthermore adds that 'he was honoured by the koinon of the Greeks with 'a golden crown, belonging to the bravest' (τιμηθέντα ὑπὸ τ[οῦ κοινο]ῦ τῶν Ἑλ[λή]/νων χρυσῶι στεφάνωι ἀριστήωι) NB: in contrast with his first appearance at this festival, victories are now also recorded for the diaulos and the hoplites. Age category is not in the inscription, but must be 'andres', as the inscription is chronological (see notes Gouw). This contest is fully known as Eleutheria 'ta tithemena hupo tou koinou ton Ellenon'.
