Moretti (1957), no. 310
Comment: The statue of Charmides appears among the statues of Euthymos (entry no. 142) and the family of Diagoras (entry nos. 189, 223). This gives an estimated date for his victory according to Moretti, who suggests the 84th Olympiad. His statue base is also found; and even though it is a 1st century BC copy, IvO dates it to the 5th century BC.
