Comment: Mentioned in Anth. Gr. 16.3; I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.16 and p. 103-4 note 212 for the dating, based on the active career of the presumed poet, Simonides, and the assumption that the editors had reason to believe Anth. Gr. 16.3 referenced a subject active during Simonides' career (thus having a reason to attribute Anth. Gr. 16.3 to Simonides); neither birthplace nor contest places are made explicit; the pentathlon is described. - PK
