Comment: Farrington (2012), 25 states that the Isthmia were likely from Nero onward held at the Poseidon sanctuary on the Isthmos, though contest place is not made explicit in this source. 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). - PK
