Comment: Some discussion on the place of origin: Moretti 1957, no. 12: Koroneia in Boiotia? No, because at this time the fame of the Olympic games had not spread so far. Korone in Messenia? No, because until this time all Olympic victory from Messenia would prefer their origin as Messenia rather than the name of their city. Hence, Korone in Attica? Philostratos mentions a victor from Kleon in the first thirteen Olympic games.
