The olympic games in ancient Greece

63,30 €

Initiated in Greece during the 8th century BC, the Olympic Games were the major athletic event in Antiquity. This volume, the only illustrated work dealing exclusively with the Olympic Games, covers all aspects of them, with a separate section devoted to the development of each contest: running, jumping, discus and javelin throwing, boxing, wrestling etc. The text is accompanied by figures of some of the greatest masterpieces of Classical art, which drew much of its inspiration from sport and the beauty of the human body in athletic competition.
