Comment: The date of the 105th Olympiad is given by two very late sources (Schol. Laur. and Anecdotae Grecae). Some have doubted this date and have favoured a later date, e.g. 332 BC. Moretti 1957, no. 424 thinks there is no reason to think the dating of 360 BC is wrong, just because of the time interval between event and source. We follow him.
