Comment: Other names are Ephodion and Ephotion, following Farrington (2012), no. 1.50; mentioned in Aristophanes' Vespae 1190-5, where the scholia say Ephoudion was a pankratiatist from Mainalos who won the Olympic games in 464 B.C., on which Farrington (2012), 117 note 266 bases his dating, which I follow here. Farrington however does not say from which source he gathers that Ephoudion was an Isthmian victor - he references Moretti (1957), no. 253 however. The victories entered are based on Farrington's authority. - PK Ephotion (Eratosthenes) Ephoudion (Aristophanes) Ephodion (Polemon Hesychios) He also won at the Pythia, Nemea and Isthmia. The date of the Olympic victory is given by the scholia on Aristophanes. - DL
