Wrestling (Isthm. 5, 56-63)
The long toil of their men is not hidden in blind darkness,
nor has thought of the expense fretted away their devotion to
their hopes. I praise Pytheas also among limb-subduing
pancratiasts, skillful with his hands in guiding straight the
course of Phylacidas' blows, and with a mind to match. Take
a garland for him, and bring him a fillet of fine wool, and
send along this winged new song.
