Comment: This might be the son of Astymedes (Person ID 521), also from Rhodes and victorious at the Isthmia in tethrippon teleion This provides the dating of 225-200 BC. SEG 28.688 is affixed to his statue, the work of Phyles son of Polygnotos of Halicarnassus, which helps with the dating (Moretti). Also a son of a certain Astymedes is attested as priest of Helios between 280-200 BC: Robert & Robert 1979, no. 309.
