Updated: Nov 30, 2023

In this episode we take a look at the ups and downs of elite sportspersonship, Ancient Greek style. Plus we think about what it was like to be a spectator at the games and athletic events that were such an important part of life. We go broader than the Olympics to look at other major and minor games from around the Greek world - and there were a lot to choose from! Below is the visual source that we talk about during the episode.
