From Astypalaia,[1] he killed Kikkos[2] of Epidauros during their [sc. Olympic] boxing-match and was stripped of his victory. Beside himself with grief, he returned to Astypalaia. But he attacked a school containing 60 children and pulled down the pillar which supported the roof. After the roof had fallen in and killed them all,[3] he was pelted with stones by the citizens and fled into a shrine,[4] where he got into a chest and pulled down the lid. The Astypalaians wore themselves out [sc. trying to open it]. In the end they broke open the woodwork of the chest but found nobody [inside].[5]
