Comment: Subject of Pindar's 13th Olympian Ode. Xenophon won both the pentathlon and stadion in the same Olympiad in 464 B.C., as well as several other victories, perhaps two Isthmian and a Nemean victory (o.a. Pi. O. 13.33-5) of unknown discipline; member of the Oligaithidai family. I generally follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.46 and p. 115 notes 258 and 259. - PK Moretti 1957, no. 250
