PARASSIA (Ancient area) ARKADIA

Damarchus of Parrhasia

As to the boxer, by name Damarchus, an Arcadian of Parrhasia, I cannot believe (except, of course, his Olympic victory ) what romancers say about him, how he changed his shape into that of a wolf at the sacrifice of Lycaean (Wolf ) Zeus, and how nine years after he became a man again. Nor do I think that the Arcadians either record this of him, otherwise it would have been recorded as well in the inscription at Olympia, which runs:
This statue was dedicated by Damarchus, son of Dinytas,
Parrhasian by birth from Arcadia.


So too, Agriopas, who wrote the Olympionics, informs us that Demaenetus, the Parrhasian, during a sacrifice of human victims, which the Arcadians were offering up to the Lycaean Jupiter, tasted the entrails of a boy who had been slaughtered; upon which he was turned into a wolf, but, ten years afterwards, was restored to his original shape and his calling of an athlete, and returned victorious in the pugilistic contests at the Olympic games. (Pliny the Elder, 8.34)
