Comment: Farrington (2012), no. 1.65 merely refers another person in the same inscription (Prateas son of Aischylos), he refers to Amandry, P. (1980), 'Sur concours argiens', in: BCHSupplement VI, 211-253, which I have not read. The inscription in question however is SEG 17.150, from the theater in Argos (basis for the assumption that this was Prateas' hometown), dated to the middle of the 4th century B.C., which is the basis for Farrington's (2012), p. 122 note 288 wide dating range. At the end of the inscription there is also a victory in wrestling by Aischylos son of Prateas in the Nemean games. - PK/YP Aischylos won a single victory at the Nemea . He was the son of Prateas, who was also a Nemeonikes and may have won his Nemean victories ca. 361 and ca. 339. Aischylos perhaps therefore won his Nemean victory ca. 331-ca. 309 BC . -EK
