Fragment of a list of those who won sport competitions in Chersonesos

Originally published by Latyshev; commentary by Solomonik

This fragment of a marble slab had been found in 1903 in the area around the Reliquary Church, under which an ancient theater was uncovered in 1957; the inscription dates to the first centuries A. D.

Text:

"Race - Diokles (...)
Double race - Diokles (...)
Long-distance race - Antilochos (...)
Wrestling - Kritoboulos ... and Theodosios (...)
Fisticuffs - Kritoboulos (...) and Antilochos (...)"

Commentary:

Above is a list of sports competitions which were held on a stadium: 1-stadium-long race (stadium was ancient Greek length unit equaling about 185 m), double-race, long-distance race, wrestling, and fisticuffs. Diokles was the one who won the first two competitions, Antilochos was the first in long-distance race, Kritoboulos and Theodosios got the best of in wrestling, though Kritoboulos and Antilochos, who participated in other competitions as well, were first in fisticuffs. Below, a verse of elegiac couplets honoring the main competitions victor is still visible.
