Comment: Pausanias saw the statue of Epikradios in Olympia amongst other statues of victors in boys' boxing. The sculptor was Ptolichos of Aegina. Another statue of Ptolichos is securely dated for the 76th Olympiad (see Moretti 1957, no. 217). Roughly 490-460 BC, Moretti 1957, no. 193 suggests the 74th Olympiad (=484 BC).
