Comment: The third contest in the source are the Aktia, presumably 'the' Aktia, though the contest place is not mentioned, it is immediately followed by the Nemea, the Aspis and the Isthmia. The dating is taken from Farrington (2012), 148 note 479, based on the reference to the Olympia at Athens founded by the 'god Hadrian', which suggests Hadrian was dead and deified at the time of this inscription, i.e.. post 138 A.D.; Ailianos participated in the first iteration of these, presumably in 131-2 A.D., so between victory and inscription there lays about 8-9 years, and given an estimated career length of 15 years Ailianos might have started around 125 A.D., thus Farrington. - PK
