Comment: Honorary citizenship in Didyma is argued for by Gouw based on the honorary inscription there. The end of the Didyma and Miletus inscription records that the athlete was honoured by the people of Athens with citizenship, a statue, and wreath of leaves because of his 'ἀνδραγαθία'. The honorary inscriptions at Didyma and Miletus are almost identical: the first part of the Didyma-inscription is lost, but the first preserved part (ll. 1-5) coincides with the Miletus-inscription ll. 12-15. Didyma ll. 6-12 are used to supplement Miletus ll. 16-20. After a short gap on section b of the Miletus-inscription, the last thirteen lines are identical with ll. 13 (end)-20 of the Didyma-inscription. The identification of the father's name on -krates and the athlete's win of the diaulos at the Olympia are based on I. v. Olympia 219, which records a victory of a [— — — — —κ]ράτους Μιλήσιος, who won the diaulos at Olympia during the 190th Olympiad (= 20 BCE). As the Milesian athlete in the Miletus-inscription also records a victory in the 190th Olympiad, it is likely (but not entirely certain of course) that it concerns the same athlete. Agonistic titles: The athlete does not identify himself as a periodoneikes or olympionikes, although he did win the required games. Gouw hence thinks that mentioning these titles in inscriptions was not very popular in this period yet. He was proclaimed the 'best of the Greeks' twice, a title restricted to winners of the Eleutheria in Plataiai.
