Comment: For the dating I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.59 and p. 119-20 note 278, based on the often unexplained dating of the source inscription to the 4th century B.C. Note that there are some differences between the editions of the epigram in the inscription. It is however generally accepted that it mentions an Isthmian victory for Diophanes as an ageneios pankratiast. - PK
