Comment: According to Farrington (2012), this athlete was twice periodonikes in stadion and hoplites. He was probably active somewhere between 150 and 175. His first Olympian victory, which Pausanias mentions (10.34.5), was probably in 161. Pausanias also mentions that Mnasiboulos was killed during an invasion of the Costoboci, a Dacian tribe, around c. 170-175. - YP
