Description
Information
Contested bitterly and bloodily, the ancient Olympics were not an idealistic celebration of unity, but a clash of military powers in an arena not far removed from the battlefield. This book presents a portrait of the Greek Olympics - fierce contests between rivals, in which victors won kudos and rewards, and losers faced scorn and even assault.
