Comment: I.Eph. 2072: - It is not clear where the man came from. Moretti interprets Ephesos. Gouw interprets that he died during a festival in Ephesos and guesses that he came from somewhere in Asia Minor (given the many victories there). - Discipline: the inscription is erected by the pentathlete Marcus Claudius Menandros and the other athletes who competed in this category (ll. 22-26). He died aged 24 (l. 19). Therefore, it is assumed that the man himself also was a pentathlete. Farrington (2012), 146 note 468 gives an alternative dating, suggesting that the Athenian Olympia mentioned in the inscription might be the athlete's penultimate victory, if the victories are in chronological order - he suggests these games were revived by Hadrian around 131-2 A.D., so the athlete might have been active until 133-4 A.D., and with an average career length of 15 years might have started his career around 118-9 A.D. - PK Sarikakis suggested a dating in the second half of the second century AD.
