Comment: The father of Kratisthenes, Mnaseas, also won an Olympic victory (for date: see entry no. 145). Hence, the estimated dating for Kratisthenes. His bronze statue of a chariot, with Nike and Kratisthenes standing on it, was also the work of Pythagoras of Rhegium (who also created the statue of Mnasesas.)
