Comment: Mentioned in the first epigram of a series: all epigrams refer to a brother, Hagias coming first, Telemachos coming second; it is said won one Olympian, five Nemean, three Pythian and 5 Isthmian victories in the pankration. There is discussion about the number of Pythian victories however, cf. Farrington (2012), p. 110 note 234, for which cf. also IG IX.2 249: it is suggested there might have been 5 Pythian victories. Farrington does not take sides, I conservatively follow Moretti, i.e. three Pythian victories. For the dating I have followed Farrington (2012), nos. 1.30 and p. 110 note 233. - PK
