Comment: Mentioned in the second epigram of a series: all epigrams refer to a brother, Hagias coming first; it is said Telemachos won the same number of victories on the same days as his brother Hagias, viz. one Olympian, five Nemean, three Pythian and 5 Isthmian victories. Hagias won in the pankration, Telemachos in the pale. For the dating I have followed Farrington (2012), nos. 1.29-30 and p. 110 notes 230 and 233. - PK
