Comment: For the dating I generally follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.58 and p. 119 note 277, who in turn follows Moretti (1957), no. 360 who dates Antiochos' Olympian victory to 400 B.C. Paus. 6.3.9 tells us that one Antiochos from Lepreon won the Olympian games as a pankratiatist, age category men, as well as two victories at both the Isthmian and Nemean games in the pentathlon. Also mentioned in Xenophon's Hellenica 7.1.33. - PK The statue of Antiochos was made by Nikodamos of Mainalos. This sculptor was mostly active in the first quarter of the 4th century BC (also entry no. 261). Moretti 1957, no. 360 suggests a victory date at the 95th Olympiad (= 400 BC). Antiochos won the pentathlon, twice at the Isthmia and twice at the Nemea. He is possibly the Antiochos who went on an embassy to Artaxerxes in 367 BC (Xen. Hell. 7.1.33). He is theref mentioned as Antiochos the pankratiast. - DL
