Comment: According to Pollux, Herodoros won the periodos sixteen times, instead of ten (Athenaeus). As Moretti rejects Pollux' claim, we followed Athenaeus' account. Farrington follows Athenaeus' account, according to which Herodoros was periodonikes 10 times. The only dated event in his life occurs during a siege of Argos by Demetrios Poliorketes which may date to 303 BC, when Herodoros uses his trumpet skills to encourage the troops of Demetrios. This suggests that Herodoros was at the peak of his skills about 303 BC and so his Nemean victories may have occurred between ca. 325 and ca. 285 BC. - EK
