Comment: Poros: Diodorus, Eusebius and Iulius Africanus Proros: Pausanias (probably a mistake) Diodorus (16.15) tells us that a certain Poros from Malis (Achaia) won the stadion-race at the 106th Olympiad. Poros may have changed his citizenship, for whatever reason. Eusebius and Iulius Alexander simply mention that the same Poros won a second time. There may have been problems in the manuscripts. But, for now, we follow Moretti who accepts that Poros won two stadion-races.
