Of Thebes, won the wrestling and boxing and pankration competitions at Isthmus[1] on the same day, and at Delphi[2] [won in] the pankration. At Olympia he was the first after [Theagenes] of Thasos[3] to be proclaimed victor in both pankration and boxing, and he also took on Kapros of Elis in wrestling and pankration on the same day. When Kapros had won [in wrestling], Kleitomakhos said it would be fair if [the umpires] would call him in to the pankration before he sustained wounds in the boxing. So the pankration was called in, and even though he was defeated by Kapros he tackled the boxers with spirit and tireless vigour. [This Kapros] was the only man to lift [Olympic] crowns in wrestling and pankration on the same day, having beaten in the pankration the aforementioned Kleitomakhos and in the pankration Paionios [of Elis], many times crowned as victor. His victories were thus the result of enormous effort and considerable hardship.[4]
