(See more under Biography, Tyrants)
He won two times in stadium, in the 91st & 92nd Olympiads, in 416 & 412 B.C.
And in the Olympiad previous to the one we are discussing, namely, the Ninety-second, when Exaenetus of Acragas won the "stadion," he was conducted into the city in a chariot and in the procession there were, not to speak of the other things, three hundred chariots each drawn by two white horses, all the chariots belonging to citizens of Acragas.
And in this year among the Eleians the Ninety-first Olympiad was celebrated, that in which Exaenetus of Acragas won the "stadion".
Exaenetus, (Exainetos), of Agrigentum, gained victories in the foot race at Olympia, in B. C. 416 (Ol. 91) and B. C. 412 (Ol. 92.) On his return from Olympia, Exaenetus was escorted into the city by a magnificent procession of 300 chariots, each drawn by two white horses. (Diod. xiii. 34, 82; Aelian, V. H. ii. 8.)
