Comment: Damaretos, father of Theopompos, won his victories in 520-516 BC. Also the son of Theopompos, Theopompos, won two victories, probably not before 440 BC. The dates of this Theompompos' victories therefore are likely to be around the early 5th c BC. Moretti suggests the 74th and 75th Olympiad (= 484 and 480 BC).. - DL
