Comment: Multiple members of this family have been victorious at the Olympia, Isthmia, and Nemea, probably in a gymnastic discipline, as Pindar writes: 'It is for the Theandridae that I contracted to come as a ready herald of their limb-strengthening contests (v. 75) at Olympia and the Isthmus, and at Nemea. From there, when they compete, they do not return without the fruit' (translation Loeb).
