Comment: On a statue-base found at Delphi an epigram in honour of Pythodelos records two victories at the Pythia, seven at Nemea and five at an unknown set of games. The two last lines are poorly preserved. The first contains the names Πυθόδωρος Πυθοδή[λ]ō, most probably the name of the dedicator, Pythodoros the son of the victor. From the form of the letters and the frequency with they appear in Athens, suggest Athens as the city of origin (Ebert 1972, 21). The statue was made by Phradmon, an Argive sculptor, and must be, as Egbert suggests an early work. This, in turn, suggests that Pythodelos’ victories may not date to before the mid 450s BC. - EK
