Comment: Thessalos won once at the Olympic games; the stadion- and diaulos-race at the Pythian games on the same day; three races in Athens (Panatheneia) on the same day (thus triastes); and he won seven times at the games of Athena Hellotis. The discipline in which Thessalos won at the Olympic games is not certain; possibly diaulos, certainly in running. Dating for athletic activity according to Strasser. Moretti gives the Olympic victory as at the 69th Olympiad (= 504 BC), but does not give any argumentation. - DL
