Comment: The statue of Troilos was made by Lysippos. If the statue was made immediately after the victory, this could have the most ancient work of the famous sculptor. Troilos won his victories at the time when he was also umpire. After his victory, the Eleans accepted a law that no umpire could participate as an athlete.
