Comment: Inscription on a statue base for Aurelius Toalis, celebrating his ἐνδόξως victory as a boy in the pankration at the Koina of the Lycians. On the location of the festivals in the wreaths: N.Milner in D.French (ed.), Studies in the History and Topography of Lycia and Pisidia. In Memoriam A.S.Hall (Ankara 1994) 93/94 'interpret the Olympia, Aktia and Pythia as ‘local versions of the original contests, because T. is only a παράδοξος, not a ἱερονείκης’'. Pleket disagrees: 'The five wreaths are likely to have been added later, when Toalis was successful on the international level (admittedly, the lettering seems similar to that of the main text); surely the Aktia are not known to have been organized in places other than Nikopolis; ἰσάκτιοι ἀγῶνες are known elsewhere, but that is a different matter' (copied from SEG 44.1171)
