Farrington (2012), no. 1.89
Comment: Described in Callimachus' 384 fragment, Sosibios won many victories, among which one (or more) at the Isthmian games; for the date range, cf. Farrington (2012), p. 128-9 note 330; Farrington there also mentions the suggestion by the scholiast that Sosibios won a victory/victories at the Nemea after his victory/victories at the Isthmia based on his reading of lines 21-5 of the fragment. - PK
