Comment: I strongly follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.194 and 150, note 513 and 151 note 514 to fill in the details for this athlete; the source, SEG 19.589 is heavily reconstructed to the extent that even the name is hardly legible - the identity of Heras is put together from many different factors: letter form for the dating to 2nd century A.D., find spot Chios for the athlete's probable origin and then comparison to Africanus, who gives to Aurelii from Chios from the 2nd century A.D., Demetrios and Heras: the second one has the preference because of the amount of letter space on the stone. It is tentative. The dating is related to this: if the athlete from the stone is indeed Africanus' Heras, his Olympian victory is firmly dated to 157 A.D., and 143 and 172 A.D. simply form the outmost careerborders as Farrington (2012), 151 note 514 assumes an average career length of 15 years (i.e. 157-15 = 143; 157+15 = 172). - PK
