The authors draw upon their extensive knowledge of the ancient world as they present a definitive survey of the Olympic Games, from 776 b.c. to a.d. 261. Readers are transported back to the eighth century b.c. and are introduced, with absorbing detail, to the games' events and their historical, social, and religious context. The authors also delineate the similarities and differences between ancient and modern games. Richly illustrated with rare artwork, this authoritative account will appeal not only to classical scholars but to all those interested in sports and athletic events. 40 unnumbered plates of illustrations. 2 maps; 16 figures.
