Comment: If the athlete from the stone is indeed Africanus' Heras, his Olympian victory is firmly dated to 157 A.D., and 143 and 172 A.D. simply form the outmost careerborders as Farrington (2012), 151 note 514 assumes an average career length of 15 years (i.e. 157-15 = 143; 157+15 = 172). Discipline is not made explicit: all his victories were however in stadion, diaulos or hoplitos (dromos). - PK The inscription mentions two victories at this festival. This is entry 1/2.
