Comment: Pausanias (6.8.1) mentions the victories of Euanoridas and adds that Euanoridas later became an umpire. The same person may also appear in IvO 299 and in a passage of Polybius (5.94) in which Euanoridas is mentioned among other men from Elis who were taken prisoner by the Achaeans in 218 BC. Hence, also the dating. [DvdL]
