Olympians 4 and 5 were written for a certain Psaumis son of Akron, a citizen of Kamarina in Sicily. They raise two separate problems: first, the nature and date of the victories they celebrate; second, the authorship of Olympian 5. The one poem, Olympian 4, is certainly by Pindar; the authenticity of the other is open to serious doubt. This chapter discusses these two problems in the following order: first the victories, second the authorship of Olympian 5.
