Of Sikyon,[1] nicknamed Akrokhersites [Finger-ends]. For by seizing the fingertips of his opponent he broke them off and did not let go before ascertaining that the man had given in. There was also Leontiskos, a Messenian out of Sicily, who competed in a similar way to Sostratos; for the latter entered the pankration, whereas Leontiskos did this while wrestling. [They say that] he was taught by Klearchos, a pupil of Eucheiros of Corinth and Chilon of Patrai.
