Moretti (1957), no. 529
Comment: IvO 174 is dated to late 4th/early 3rd century BC. Moretti (1957), no. 529 suggests Philippos' victory to have taken place at the 122nd Olympiad (= 292 BC). His statue may have been seen by Pausanias (6.8.5), but because that statue was made by Myron of Athens Moretti (1957), no. 319 thinks we are dealing with two different athletes called Philippos both victories at the Olympia in the boys' boxing contest.
