KIRKUS REVIEW

Two classical historians survey the original Olympics, held every four years from (putatively) 776 B.C. to 261 A.D. at Olympia in the western Peloponnese. Finley and Pleket discuss the program of events, the design of stadiums and spectator facilities, the administration and sponsorship of the Games, the courses of athletic training.
