Comment: Diodorus does not specify in which discipline Lasthenes won his Olympic victory. He does however tell us that Lasthenes won against a horse on the road from Thebes to Koroneia (ca. 30-35 km). Moretti 1957, no. 352 therefore thinks Lasthenes won his victory in the long-race (dolichos). But I think it could equally be a horse-race (keles).
