Best Answer

385 was the last time the games were recorded. the games were banned in 394 by the Roman Emperor Constantine on religious grounds. This ban on the final remnants of paganism was reinforced in about 427 by emperor Theodosius II.

385 was the last recorded games, although the games may have continued to 393 (in 394 the games were banned by the then Roman Emperor).
