Comment: According to Farrington (2012) this athlete was probably active in the third century. Moretti (1957) tentatively places his Olympic victories in 213, 217 and 221. The athlete is mentioned as being victorious in the periodos. Only his three olympic victories are mentioned in the inscription. We assume that the other periodos victories included the traditional periodos festivals. - YP Athlete has won here three times in a row: Ὀλύνπια τὰ ἐν Πείσῃ / κατὰ τὸ ἑξῆς, this is victory 1/3. - CT
