Comment: The date of Euryleonis' victory is uncertain, but must have been at last after Kyniska's victories (see entry no. 300). Kyniska was the first woman to breed horses and win an Olympic victory. We may think of a date in the 4th century BC after Kyniska's victories. Moretti 1957, no. 418 suggests the 103rd Olympiad (= 368 BC).
