Comment: The date of the first victory of Alkainetos is given by P.Oxy 222. The date of the second one, as andres, seems secure to Moretti, because the victors in pgume of the 82nd and 83rd Olympiads are known from P.Oxy 222. The sons of Alkainetos, Hellanikos and Theantos were also victorious at the Olympic games (89th and 90th Olympiad respectively).
