Comment: Mentioned in Paus. 6.4.2 as well as IAG 25; they mention 12 victories in the Nemea and Isthmia combined, as well as three Olympian and two Pythian victories. Moretti (1957), nos. 420, 425, 433 dates the Olympic victories to 364, 360 and 356 B.C., which Ebert (1979) follows; Moretti and Ebert likewise date the Pythian victories to 362 and 358 B.C., following Klee and Knab. This is the basis for Farrington's date range, which is followed here (Farrington (2012), p. 122-3 note 289). Sostratos was a pankratiatist. We cannot know how many Isthmian and Nemean victories he won: we only have the sum. This cannot as of yet be accommodated by this database. One victory for each contest has been entered for now. - PK
