Comment: Pausanias (6.17.4) records the victory of Hermesianax and his statue which was set up by the community of Kolophon. Moretti (1957), no. 475 suggests he was victorious during the 115th Olympiad (= 320 BC), but he does not give any reason for it. We may cautiously date his victory to the second half of the 4th century BC. [DvdL]
