Comment: Roman emperor from 54 to 68 A.D. Cassius Dio records that Nero wen to Greece to become periodonikes (ἵνα καὶ περιοδονίκης, ὡς ἔλεγε, γένηται, D.C. 63.8.3). For what it's worth, his soldiers, and the people of Rome and the senators, upon Nero's return to Rome are said to have praised him as Πυθιονίκην τε αὐτὸν καὶ Ὀλυμπιονίκην καὶ περιοδονίκην παντονίκην, always in combination with 'Caesar' or 'Augustus' (ἐφ᾿ ἑκάστῳ τόν τε Καίσαρα καὶ τὸν Αὔγουστον ἀκροτελεύτιον εἶναι, D.C. 63.10.1; this is also recorded in D.C. 63.20.5). There are several sources referring to Nero's victories, both in musical disciplines (as herald, tragoidos, and katharoidos) and in chariot racing. An exhaustive search has not been conducted for this database. Cassius Dio records a total of 1808 victories for him (D.C. 63.21.1) - PK/CT Cf. Kennell, AJPh 109 (1988) pp. 239-251 for a discussion of Nero’s tour of Greece in 66/67 AD based on literary and numismatic evidence (SEG 38.1942)
