About the Authors
  • This book is a comprehensive examination of Olympic victor lists. The origins, development, content, and structure of Olympic victor lists are explored and explained, and a number of important questions, such as the source and reliability of the year of 776 for the first Olympics, are addressed. Olympic victor lists emerge as a clearly defined type of literature that is best understood as a group of closely related texts. This book offers a fresh perspective on works by familiar writers such as Diodorus Siculus and a sense of the potential importance of less-well-known authors such as Phlegon of Tralleis.

    • First comprehensive examination of Olympic victor lists, a type of literature widely read in the ancient world
    • Addresses a number of questions of considerable importance, including the source and reliability of the date 776 for the first Olympics
    • Pertains to subject matter that is of interest to almost any scholar whose work touches on ancient Greek history
