The ancient Olympic Games were a series of competitions held between representatives of various city-states in ancient Greece, which featured mainly athletic events, but also combat and chariot races. The origin of these Olympic Games is shrouded in mystery and legends. One of the most popular myths identifies Hercules and Zeus, his father, as the parents of the Games. According to legend, it was Hercules who first called the Games "Olympic" and established the custom of exploring them every four years. The legend persists that, after Hercules completed his twelve jobs, he built the Olympic stadium as an honor to Zeus. Upon completion, he walked a straight 200 steps and called this distance a stadium (Greek: στάδιον, Latin: stadium, "stage"), which later became a unit of distance. Another myth associates the first Games with the ancient Greek concept of Olympic truce (ἐκεχειρία, ekecheiria). The most accepted date for the start of the ancient Olympic Games is 776 BC, which is based on inscriptions, found in Olympia, of the winners of a foot race held every four years from 776 BC. The Ancient Games highlighted running events, pentathlon (which consists of a jumping, discus and javelin event, a foot race and a fight), boxing, wrestling and equestrian events. Tradition says that Coroebus, a cook from the city of Elis, was the first Olympic champion.
The Olympics were of fundamental religious importance, with sporting events alongside sacrifice rituals in honor of both Zeus (whose famous statue by Phidias was in his temple in Olympia) and Pelope, the divine hero and mythical king of Olympia. Pélope was famous for his chariot race with King Enomau of Pisatis. The winners of the tests were admired and immortalized in poems and statues. The Games were held every four years, and this period, known as an Olympics, was used by the Greeks as one of their units for measuring time. The Games were part of a cycle known as the Pan-Hellenic Games, which include the Mythic Games, the Nemean Games, and the Isthmic Games.
The Olympic Games reached their zenith between the 6th and 5th centuries BC, but then gradually lost in importance as the Romans gained power and influence in Greece. According to some authors, the decline in the Olympic spirit does not begin in the Roman period, but in the Hellenistic period. One of the most important causes for understanding this decline is the change in status from citizen / soldier to subject (soldier / professional or athlete / professional). In this way, professionalism took place as an effect of political change and not as the very cause of the changes that occurred from the classical to the Hellenistic period.
There is no consensus on when the Games officially ended; the most common date is AD 393, when Emperor Theodosius I declared that all pagan practices and cults would be eliminated. Another date is AD 426, when his successor Theodosius II ordered the destruction of all Greek temples. The Olympic Games did not happen again until the end of the 19th century. (source: Wikipedia)
