Comment: Aristokrates, the uncle of Epichares, was condemned to death after the battle of Arginousai (406 BC). His grandson was around 20 years old when he accused Theokrines in 342 BC ( Demosthenes). We may surmise therefore a date for Epichares' victory at the start of the 4th century BC. Moretti 1957, no. 368 suggests the 96th Olympiad (= 396 BC).
