Comment: Mentioned briefly in Paus. 6.6.1, expanded upon in IvO 161: only a threefold victory in Isthmia is legible, other victories might be reconstructed, but are not added here, as I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.62 and p. 120 note 282. An Olympian victory is however likely, since that is where Pausanias saw Narykidas' statue and where the inscription was found - dated to 384 B.C. by Moretti (1957), no. 392. The dating is based on Farrington, who in turns refers to Moretti and Ebert among others for the dating of the inscription (whose maker is legible and known, one Daidalos son of Patrokles). Farrington suggests wrestling as discipline, based on Pausanias. - PK The statue of Narykidas was made by Daedalos of Sikyon, mostly active in the early 4th century BC. The statue base has been found (IvO 161) and records that Narykidas also won three victories at the Nemea. - DL
