This chapter discusses Pindar's ode, Olympian 12, which celebrates a number of victories won by Ergoteles of Himera in Sicily. It is not in any proper sense an Olympian at all: the first victory mentioned was at Olympia, which is why the ode was classified by Aristophanes of Byzantium among the Olympians; but the most recent of the victories, the immediate occasion of the ode, was won not at Olympia but at Pytho.

Keywords:   Pindar, Olympian 12, victory, Ergoteles, Pytho
