There were not any Roman Olympics. The Romans did not hold the Olympics. The Olympics were Greek games. They continued during Roman rule in Greece. It is not certain when the games were abolished. One hypothesis is that they were abolished in 393 AD by the emperor Theodosius I, a Christian Roman emperor who banned pagan practices. He would have regarded the Olympics as a pagan practice. Another hypothesis is that they were abolished in in 426 AD by Theodosius II, an emperor who ordered the destruction of all Greek temples.
