2,3 FOR CASMYLUS OF RHODES, BOXER

2 Scholion on Lucian, Dialogues of the Dead. “Pindar mentions this Trophonius and the other (or his brother) in the Isthmian ode to Casmylus the Rhodian boxer.1 He tells the following”:

He who is willing and able to live luxuriously, by taking the advice of the Far-Shooter2 given to Agamedes and Trophonius3

3 Plutarch, Letter of Consolation to Apollonius. “And of Agamedes and Trophonius Pindar says that after building the temple in Delphi they asked for their wages from Apollo, who promised to pay them on the seventh day and encouraged them to feast in the meantime. They did what they were ordered, and on the seventh night, after going to sleep, they died.”
