Comment: Mentioned in IG XII.5 608 line 14, 25, discussed in Schmidt, D. (1999), 'An Unusual Victory List from Keos: IGXII.5.608 and the Dating of Bacchylides', JHS 119, 67-85, p.70. I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.44 and p. 114 note 256. Farrington suggests Ioulis, perhaps Keos as the origin of the victor, since that is where the inscription, a victory list likely pertaining to Isthmian victors (Farrington (2012), p. 113 note 249), was found (from l. 17 onward it pertains to Nemean victories). Farrington's note 256 pertains to the dating, which he based upon the estimated addition of age category ageneioi to the Isthmian games and the dating of the inscription (viz. 330 B.C.). Discipline is no longer legible apart from the age category, Farrington suggests pale. - PK
