what roman emporer who got banned from the Olympics in 394
The olympic games were stopped after 393 AD by Theodosius I when he tried to make Christianity his state religion.
Theodosius I attempted to ban all Olympic games in ancient Greece, although he may not have been entirely successful. He declared the ban in 394 AD as part of a larger ban on pagan celebrations and rituals.
That fun guy Theodosius I was the emperor who banned the Olympics. He's also the one who made Christianity mandatory and persecuted the pagans.
In 146 AD when almost all of Greece was under the control of Rome (Roman Empire), the Olympic games started to diminish, though they did go on and were enjoyed by those who attended them. But in 394 AD (Anno Domini), under orders from Emperor Theodosius 1, these were abolished as it was forbidden to worship idols. The Games were revived after almost 1500 years.
Olympic games were started sometime in 779 BC in Olympia, Greece. These were athletic competitions between Greek city states. The ancient Olympic games continued in some form till 394 AD, after which Theodosius I the Roman emperor suppressed them as a measure to curb pagan ritual and practices to promote Christianity.

the Olympic games
The games were abolished in AD 393
The original Olympic games were held by the ancient Greeks at Olympus in the year 776 BC as a celebration honoring their most important god, Zeus. These games were held every four years until 394 AD. The games were restarted in modern times in the year 1896 in Athens, Greece.
Either in AD 393 or AD 435
The original Olympic Games were first recorded in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece, and were held until AD 393.
No. 1896 are the beginning of what we call the modern Olympic games. The first Olympic games started in 776 BC Olympia, Greece (hence the name 'Olympics') and were celebrated until AD 393.
AD 393385 was the last recorded games, although the games may have continued to 393 (in 394 the games were banned by the then Roman Emperor).
Olympia (Greece) a sanctuary in ancient Greece in Elis; an ancient district, that corresponds with the modern Ilia Prefecture (Western Peloponnese and in the western part of Greece). .. It is known for having been the site of the Olympic Games in classical times, comparable in importance to the Pythian Games held in Delphi. Both games were held every Olympiad (ie. every four years), the Olympic Games dating back possibly further than 776 BC. In 394 AD (after exactly 1170 years) emperor Theodosius I abolished them as they were then considered reminiscent of paganism. The first olympic games were in Olympia in honor of Zeus.
I don't really know but it started in 776 BC and ended in 393 ad
It was stopped in 393 AD because of Christianity by Theodus the 1st.
The Olympic games lasted until 395 AD
The ancient Olympic Games were celebrated from 776 BC to approximate 393 AD. The modern Olympics began in 1896. So there was about a 1500 year lull there where no Olympic Games were held.
In fact, they were not started by Romans, but Greeks again.
No one knows when they began, but they were in widespread use by 4000 BCE and the last known use was 394 CE (394 AD)
There is not a term with Olympic standing on its own. There is the term Olympic Games, which can be abbreviated as the OlympicS. The modern Olympic Games are well known. The original games, were the Ancient Olympic Games, a multi-sport event held in Olympia, Greece between 776 BC and 393 AD. There were not any contacts between the Greeks and the Maya. At that time the existence of America was not even known. America was discovered in the late 15th century, roughly 1,100 years after the end of the ancient Olympic games
Because the first games were recorded in 776BC at Olymipa in GreeceThe First games were held on mount Olympia in greek in the AD times
Well, considering that the very first ancient Olympics began in 776 BC and ended in AD 394, that would mean the ancient Olympics were attended every four years (like today's Olympics) until 1170 years had passed. If these games went uninterrupted over that period of time, then there should have been around/exactly 292 ancient Olympic games held.
