There is a problem with the reading
of the name. The name is the only attestation in Greek. Several scholars have therefore suggested to read Mnase[as], another Olympic victor in the hoplite-race (see entry no. 145), the father of Kratisthenes (see entry no. 194). Moretti 1957, no. 277 argues against this reading, because if Mnaseas was victor in 456 BC, Kratisthenes could only have won his victory in tethrippon in 432 BC or later. Since the monument of father Mnaseas and son Kratisthenes was made by Pythagoras of Rhegium, this is not possible (according to Moretti, Pythagoras was active in the first half of the 5th century BC).
