Dorieus (died c. 395 BCE) was a son of Diagoras of Rhodes and the brother of Kallipateira and thus the uncle of Peisirrhodos, as well as an athlete who competed in the Olympic Games in Greece during the 5th century BCE.

Claiming descent from the hero Herakles, Dorieus had won in 432 BCE, and so was the defending Pankration champion in subsequent competitions. However, in 428 BCE he was defeated by the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who replaced the Spartan champion Testikles in the games at the last minute.[1]

Trivia

  • Historically, Dorieus won the Pankration event in 428 BCE. He would also go on to win the event at the following Olympic Games in 424 BCE.
  • After his Olympic career, Dorieus would go on to become a politician and take part in the Peloponnesian War. He was later executed by the Spartans in 395 BCE.
