Comment: I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.14 and p. 103 note 210 for the dating, who suggests this might be the same Leokreon who is the [...]kreon mentioned in Philostratus (Farrington does not mention where, but refers to a book by J├╝thner from 1909, Peri Gymnastikes, 144, 13) who won the paides pankration in 540; he suggests that both men's victories at the Isthmia might then follow this victory in 536 and 534 B.C. The discipline 'pankration' is a reconstruction, it is not there in the source IG XII.5 608. I only entered the victories from the inscription. Contest place is not mentioned; the source is a victory list - neither 'Isthmia' nor the contest place are made explicit or are more likely no longer legible, but Farrington (2012), no. 1.14 suggests this was about Isthmian victors; later the source does have a line which says 'These won the Nemean games ...', ergo the list seems to maybe have honoured all athletes from the community who won a victory in the contests of the periodos, and IG XII.5 608 only presents part of the Isthmian and Nemean victors. - PK
