Comment: Based off of the description by Paus. 6.14.1-2; the dating is based on Farrington (2012), no. 1.9 and p. 102 note 204, viz. between the start of the Nemea as a panhellenic festival and the reference to him by Pausanias. Pausanias mentions three victories, presumably all in men's wrestling: Olympia, Isthmia, Nemea (though for the latter two the discipline is by implication, it seems reasonable, and Farrington also gives 'pale andron'). Contest places are not made explicit. - PK
