Comment: According to Farrington (2012), this athlete was probably active somewhere between c. 250-300 because the source Roueche, PPAphr 75 is roughly dated to that period. According to Roueche, PPAphr, 207 Piseas was active in either pugme or pankration. He held the title of periodonikes. The specific festivals of the periodos are not mentioned in the inscriptions. Therefore we assume that Piseas was victorious at the four traditional panhellenic festivals. - YP
