Comment: The Hadrianeia are unspecified, though there are later again mentioned two Hadrianeia in Smyrne and Ephesos, so that Farrington (2012), 147 note 476 says of this first, vague mention that it is 'possibly duplicated'; I take the dating from Farrington (2012), 147 note 476, based on the firmly dated Olympian victory by Moretti (1957), no. 854 to 137 A.D. (the source gives the Olympiad) and the dating of the inscription (Ivo 217 = IAG 70) by Moretti to ca. 140 A.D. - Farrington goes from here to the proposed date range by assuming a possible career length of ca. 20 years for a herald - the Hadrianeia may have been founded in 123-4 A.D. on Hadrian's visit to Asia Minor; about discipline it is said 'kerukas kai tous hypogegrammenous agonas'. - PK
