Comment: According to Farrington (2012), this athlete was probably active somewhere between c. 250-300 because the source Roueche, PPAphr 74 is roughly dated to that period. According to Roueche, PPAphr, 207 Kandidianos was active in either pugme or pankration. He held the title of periodonikes. The specific festivals of the periodos are not mentioned in the inscriptions. Therefore we assume that Kandidianos was victorious at the four traditional panhellenic festivals. - YP
