A statue of Lysander, son of Aristocritus, a Spartan, was dedicated in Olympia by the Samians, and the first of their inscriptions runs:“In the much-seen precinct of Zeus, ruler on high,
I stand, dedicated at public expense by the Samians.
”So this inscription informs us who dedicated the statue; the next is in praise of Lysander himself:“Deathless glory by thy achievements, for fatherland and for Aristocritus,
Lysander, hast thou won, and art famed for valour.
