Olympia : The Olympic Games, Paperback Book


Jill Dudley relates the various myths regarding the founding of the Olympic Games. She takes the reader around the main buildings on the site where the athletes took their vows, and the victors were crowned before the cult statue of the supreme god Zeus in his temple; this statue was one of the seven wonders of the world. It is as it says on the back cover of the booklet: All you need to know about the sacred site, its myths, legends and its gods.
