Comment: The number of victories at the Nemea is not clear. Pindar's ode reads Ἰσθμοῖ τά τ᾿ ἐν Νεμέᾳ παύρῳ ἔπει θήσω φανέρ᾿ ἀθρό᾿, ἀλαθής τέ μοι / ἔξορκος ἐπέσσεται ἑξηκοντάκι δὴ ἀμφοτέρωθεν. Farrington interprets that the Oligaithidai won 60 victories in total in Isthmia and at the Nemea, but it may also be possible that 60 victories from each of the two are meant. Because of the unclarity, both the Nemea and the Isthmia are only entered once in the database for this group of athletes. At least one of the Nemean victories was won by Xenophon, see Pindar's Thirteenth Olympian ode, ll. 32-34. Farrington writes 'Athletic events (?)' for discipline.
