Pausanias may have been wrong in
attributing Chionis' first victory to the 28th Olympiad (see database). So we are left with six victories: three in stadion, three in diaulos, all at the same Olympic games (29th, 30th, 31st). Pausanias (6.13.2) also records a statue of Chionis in Olympia, but on the statue base it is recorded that at the time of Chionis there was no hoplite-discipline (armed running) yet. The statue was either set up much later or this line was added at a later time. Probably at the time of the erection of a statue for Astylos who won seven Olympic victories in the 5th c BC and whose statue stood directly next to the one of Chionis. See Moretti 1957, no. 42 for discussion.
