Arra'chion

Ἀρραχίων), of Phigalea in Arcadia, a celebrated Pancratiast, conquered in the Olympic games in the 52nd, 53rd and 54th Olympiads. In the last Olympiad he was unfairly killed by his antagonist, and was therefore crowned and proclaimed as conqueror, although dead. (Paus. 8.40.2.) Philostratus (Imag. 2.6) calls him Arrichion, and Africanus (apud Euseb. Chron. p. 50) Arichion.
