There were two prominent leaders of the Aetolians called Pantaleon. The first was general of the league five times during the second half of the 3rd century. The second, who was honoured by this statue, was general three times between 186/5 and 174/3 B.C. In 172 B.C., Pantaleon accompanied king Eumenes II on a visit to Delphi ( Liv_42.15 ).
The city of Delphi dedicated this statue of Pantaleon of Pleuron in Aetolia, the son of Petalos, to Apollo on account of his virtue and his goodwill towards the temple and the people.
