1. A Corinthian, the son of Thessalus. He was victor at the Olympic games, both in the foot-race and in the pentathlum, in the 79th Olympiad. His family belonged to the stock of the Oligaethidae, and was one of the ruling families of Corinth. Pindar's 13th Olympic Ode celebrates his double victory. (Böckh and Dissen on Pindar, l.c. ; Diod. 11.70 ; Paus. 4.24.5, ed. Bekker; Athen. 13.573.)
