Farrington (2012), no. 1.38
Comment: Theiaios is the subject of Pindar's 10th Nemean Ode. I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.38 and p. 113 note 247 for dating, based on the dating of the poem and an estimated average career span of 15 years. It is said he was a wrestler, and victor in many different contests, enumerated on lines 22-8 of the poem. A Pythian, three Isthmian and three Nemean victories as well as 2 victories in what is according to the scholiast an Argive contest, the Heraia (or Hekatomboia). Pytho instead of Delphi though technically the same. Age category not specified. - PK
