Comment: Farrington (2012) dates the agonistic career Marcus Aurelius Chrysippos between possibly c. 170 and 185. He was a periodonikes in pale (wrestling). While Chrysippos originated from Alexandria, he also was a citizen of Smyrne. - YP Chrysippos was accompanied by his trainer and mentor Trophimos, whose name is mentioned on the honourary inscription. His nickname might be related to his fighting technique (Gouw).
