This article provides a new edition of the Panathenaic victor list IG II2 2313, the first to be made based on autopsy of the stone as well as photographs and squeezes of it, and suggests a date for it in the years just prior to the Second Macedonian War. Such examination places this important text in the context of the games and demonstrates that it forms part of a connected series of Panathenaic victor lists of the late 3rd and first half of the 2nd centuries B.C. This stone preserves portions of three lists, which have fewer events and a markedly different organization from later lists. These early lists thus reflect a period of transition in the reestablishment of the games after the recovery of independence in 229 B.C.
