Headword: Λεοντίσκος
Adler number: lambda,258
Translated headword: Leontiskos, Leontiscus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
There was also Leontiskos, a Messenian out of Sicily; the so-called Akrokhersites ["Mr Fingertip"] -- for by seizing the fingertips of his opponent he would break them off and not let go before ascertaining that the man had given in. He too used to wrestle.
Greek Original:
Λεοντίσκος: ἦν δὲ καὶ Λεοντίσκος Μεσσήνιος ἐκ Σικελίας, Ἀκροχερσίτης οὕτω καλούμενος: λαμβανόμενος γὰρ ἄκρων τῶν χειρῶν τοῦ ἀνταγωνιστοῦ κατέκλα καὶ οὐ πρότερον ἠφίει, πρὶν αἴσθοιτο ἀπαγορεύσαντος. οὗτος δὲ καὶ ἐπάλαιεν.
