Comment: This Lykinos might have been the same as the hoplite-victor at the 83rd Olympiad (= 448 BC). The identification is not certain, though. His statues were made by Myron of Athens, providing an approximate dating (= mid-5th century BC). Moretti 1957, no. 324 suggests the 87th Olympiad (= 432 BC).
