Hysmon

Ὕσμων), an Eleian athlete, who began when a boy to practise the pentathlon as a cure for rheumatism, and who was victorious in that kind of contest, once in the Olympian games, and once in the Nemean: from the Isthmian games the Eleians were excluded. His statue in the Altis at Olympia, representing him as holding old-fashioned halteres, was the work of Cleon. (Paus. 6.3.4.) [CLEON.]
