Comment: According to Farrington (2012) this athlete must have been active between ca AD 156-176. However, Moretti (1953) indicates that this athlete was active in a later period, between ca AD. 212-217. The argumentation of Farrington can be found in his footnote 528. -YP A mosaic inscription from Rhegium (SEG 55.1056) may refer to him or to his son M. Aurelius Damas (PersonID 1455). For a detailed study see Strasser 2003 (= Strasser, J.-Y. (2003). ‘La carrière du pancratiaste Markos Aurèlios Dèmostratos Damas’, in Bulletin de correspondance hellénique 127(1): 251-299.)
