Summary
What was it like to attend the Olympics in 388 B.C.? Would the experience resemble Olympic festivals as we celebrate them today? This book transports us back to the heyday of the city-state and classical Greek civilisation. It invites us to enter still familiar culture and discover what the Greeks did and didn't do in August 2,400 years ago
Summary
A guide to the ancient Olympics features a program of events, transportation options as provided by passenger ferry and ox cart, accommodations, and dining options, all as they would have appeared in 338 BC in the spectacle's early days
