Overview:Greek Athletics and the Olympics - Greece and Rome: Texts and Contexts - An exciting series that provides students with direct access to the ancient world by offering new translations of extracts from its key texts.Where did the idea of celebrating the Olympic Games every four years come from? The short answer is ancient Greece. The very name 'Olympic' announces an origin for the competition, but, as with most of our classical heritage, it is easy for the superficial similarities to conceal major cultural differences. The purpose of this new book in the Greece and Rome: Texts and Contexts series is to provide an introduction to Greek athletics and their most important competition at Olympia through a selection of contemporary visual and literary sources.
