In this portion of Pausanias' incredible travelogue he concentrates on the Pythian Games. Originally the contest was about singing paeans to the god, Apollo. He list several names here.
1). The first winner ever according to Pausanias is a man from Crete named Chrysothemis. Chrysothemis is a girl's name. Not too many names in Greek mythology swing both ways. (Anyone got examples?). In my ongoing belief that Pausanias is saying more than he is say I suggest that the first winner of the Pythian Games was a woman and Pausanias only says she is a man to be politically correct.
2). The second winner is Philammon. His mother the nymph Chione was slain by Artemis for the sin of hubris.
3). The third winner was Philammon's son Thamyris. He thought himself better than the Muses. They consequently took his voice and sight. Apparently hubris was a familial habit.
Next mentioned was Orpheus who did not compete. (So, why is he mentioned? Is there some logic here other than listing Pythian champions?) One suggestion is he was torn apparent ad eaten by "maenads" for his hubris in entering Hades with the intent of stealing Eurydice"
The last name listed here, also did not compete for the prize (So again why mention?) was Musaeus, student of Orpheus, who apparently learned a lesson from many of the above, followed the Delphic maxim "Know thyself." (Know your place!) And was blessed by the gods.
