Comment: Pankratiatist with three victories in three different age categories, two at the Isthmian games and one at the Nemean games; the epigram is a bit unclear to me, cf however Farrington (2012), p. 125 note 310 who I follow. The date range by Farrington is established on the name of the sculptor mentioned in the source (IG VII, 2470 = IAG 36), cf. Farrington (2012), p. 124 note 309. - PK Euakritos won in the boys’ pankration and in the pankration μεσάταν ἁλικίαν (that is, of the ἀγένειοι) at the Isthmia. If Peek’s reading is correct, as it probably is, his Nemean victory was also in the pancration of the ἀγένειοι. - EK
