Comment: The name of the boxer is spelled differently in the two sources. Pausanias writes Aristodemos, the epigram has Aristodamos. Remarkably, both for the artist behind the man's statue and the poet behind his epigram are known: Pausanias remarks that Aristodemos' statue is made by Daedalos from Sikyon, who was the pupil and son of Patrokles. According to the anthology, the epigram was written by Simonides.
