Comment: I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.43 and p. 114 notes 254-5; the origin is deduced from the find spot of the inscription (IG II(2), 3123)), as well as a prosopography of Pronapes (for references: see the LGPN entry for Pronapes as well as the commantaries on DAA 174 and Farrington's aforementioned notes); the dating is based on the dating of the inscription (viz. 450-440 B.C.) and a prosopography of Pronapes, who was a hipparch and possibly an accuser of Themistocles. The accompanying sculpture shows the assumed discipline of Pronapes' victories, the tethrippos. The inscription gives three contests (without contest places): the Nemea, Isthmia and Panathenaia in that order - perhaps there were more on the partly erased second line of the inscription. - PK
