The ancient Olympic Games began in 776 BC and would run for over a thousand years, waning during the Roman Empire with the advent of Christianity. Every aspect of the ancient games was imbued with a sacred significance.This book brings together some of the objects associated with the ancient Olympic Games, including sculpture, grave markers, votive offerings, ceramic vases, and sporting equipment. Despite their diversity of styles, media, and ages, the objects all relate to the theme of sport, most have a religious rather than a secular significance and they all stand as rare and important examples of their kind. This 2000 Powerhouse Publishing Paperback is in Near Mint condition.
