Comment: P.Oxy 222 records the Olympic victory in the boys' stadion-race. Bacch. only mentioned stadion-race. In IG XII(5), 608 Lachon also appears to have won two boys' competitions (one of them also a stadion-race?). Or was the repetition an error? Moretti 1957, no. 288 states that these were victories at the Nemea. P. Oxy 222 gives the name as Lakon. Incomplete in database (2021) - PS
