Comment: The source, I.Eph 1131, is from Ephesos, which is the only basis for Farrington's (2012), no. 1.170 assumption that the unnamed athlete was also Ephesian. It is a victory list made up of crowns. Farrington (2012), 148 note 480 is also the basis for the suggested dating, which works from the mention of the Kyzikon Olympia, founded between 135-8 A.D., and the assumption the athlete might have participated three times in them, but did not participate in notable late second century contest such as the Kommodeia: ergo the third victory might have been in the third iteration of the Kyzikon Olympia, around 146 A.D., which may be the end of the athlete's career, which may then have started as early as 125 A.D., thus Farrington. The source may give a chronological order? - PK See Brunet pp. 322-3 on how this inscription looked on stone. It was to be read across, not down. Several festivals appear more than once: those without a number reflect on the first victory at that festival, those with βʹ the second victory, those with γʹ the third etc. according to Brunet. This supports the idea that the inscription gives a chronological order of the victories. There are 15 wreaths uninscribed on the lower right side. A suggestion Brunet gives is that these might have been reserved for any victories of this athlete after the monument was set up. - PS
