    According to tradition, the most important athletic competitions were inaugurated in 776 B.C. at Olympia in the Peloponnesos. (Olympic Games)
    The victors at all these games brought honor to themselves, their families, and their hometowns. Public honors were bestowed on them, statues were dedicated to them, and victory poems were written to commemorate their feats. Numerous vases are decorated with scenes of competitions to celebrate athletic victories.
    For this reason, sports in ancient Greece generally excluded team competitions and performances aimed at setting records. During competition and training, athletes were usually naked and covered with olive oil to keep off the dust.

    As this item is hand made, measurements, surface texture and verdigris patina color may vary slightly.
