Comment: Farrington has the athlete listed as a doubtful isthmionikes because he does not identify himself as such and because the reconstruction of a victory at the Isthmia in the inscription (ll. 17-18) is doubtful. Farrington n. 689: 'Archibios does not claim the title of periodonikes, which seems to have been current in inscriptions by this time, albeit only recently so (...) and to which a victory in the Isthmia would have entitled him, although not all those apparently entitled to claim the title actually do so. Thus the reading at ll. 17 – 18, ‘...Ἴσθμια] ἀνδρῶν’ is probably to be rejected (...), but one cannot be certain.' He was the first of men eight(!) times to win: (1) the Megala Capitolia four times in a row (pankration), (2) the Pythia as ageneios (pankration) and in the next Pythian games as a man (pankration and pale) and in the next Pythian games as man (pankration), (3) the Nemea three times in a row (pankration; this excludes his victory at this game when he was a child), (4) the Aktia as a youth in pale and pankration, and then an unknown number of times in a row in the men's pankration, (5) an unknown festival as a youth (ageneios), winning the pale and pankration, then the pale and the pankration in the men's category two times in a row, and at the next celebration of this festival he won the men's pankration, (6) the Balbilleia in all combat disciplines (pugme, pale, pankration) (7) a festival in Antiochia once in the childrens' pankration, at the next celebration in the youths' pale and pankration, and at the two consecutive celebrations both in the men's pankration (8) a festival in Alexandria once in the children's pankration, and at the next celebration he won the pankration in the men's (!) category (i.e. skipping the youths' category), he also won the pankration in the men's category in the celebration of the festival thereafter and possibly also thereafter, but the inscription is damaged there (l. 29)
