Comment: Dating based on Farrington (2012), p. 141 n. 444, with reference to the source mentioning the Balbilleia. The last lines of the inscription read that he 'also won many other agones in the pale and the pankration'. - PK According to Gouw, Alexandros was from a prominent family (Gouw). In total, 8+ victories: Corinth, Ephesos (2), Smyrna (2), Ankyra (?), Myra, Sardis, 'and many others as wrestler and pankratiast' (καὶ ἄλλουσ πλείςτουσ ἀγῶνασ πάλθν πανκράτιον)
