Pantaleon son of Omphalion

Pantaleon (Πανταλέων). (1) A king of Pisa in Elis, son of Omphalion. In 644 BC he seized upon Olympia by force, and being supported by his troops declared himself sole umpire of the Olympian Games. Hence, the Eleans afterwards refused to reckon this Olympiad (the thirty-fourth) in the regular calendar. Pantaleon also aided the Messenians in the Second Messenian War (Pausan. vi. 21, 22; Strabo ).
