Farrington (2012), no. 1.26
Comment: Mentioned in Pindar's 13th Olympian Ode, line 42, a relative of the Ode's subject, Xenophon (according to a scholiast Terpsias' son, viz. first cousin once removed to Xenophon); it is assumed that Eritimos was from Corinth as his relative Xenophos. I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.26 and p. 109 note 227 for the dating: he follows the scholiast for the family relations between the athletes mentioned in Pindar and thus estimates Eritimos was active ca. one generation before Xenophon, who won the Olympics in 464 B.C. It is not mentioned how often or in what discipline Eritimos won. - PK
