In Ancient Greece, warfare generally ceased during the times in which the Olympic games were held (and during similar athletic contests elsewhere in Greece) due to their religious significance. Formal athletic contests like the Olympics were, for ancient Greeks, divine gifts of some kind. The gods were thought to enjoy the games; the games were considered to be an offering to the gods. Thus, to engage in warfare during these times would be to commit an offense against the gods -- and to run the risk of divine punishment as a result.
How would I know I wasn't born
i would say a week
War. If there were any battles or wars going on, they would call a temporary truce to play in the Olympic games.
The Olympic games stand for a worldwide meaning, equality, fraternity, peacefulness. War would stop in ancient Olympic games, thats how much it mean s to everyone
If you would win the games that particular game would be names after you
I have no idea! I need the awnser to myself!
some one will win
If you mean the ancient Olympic games in Rome or Italy where ever it was then it is because they would compete naked to make sure they weren't a girl( because back then girls weren't allowed to compete in Olympic games) and it was also in the same place unlike nowadays.
why would I tell you guys can't u look it up lozers
The ancient Greeks would hold the Olympic games to honor Zeus. They would come together every four years to honor him.
If they started early they would be beaten or disqualified
being a torch bearer in the 96 Olympic games i would value it as priceless
no if they even watched it they would be sentenced to death
First recorded would be 776 BC, the first Ancient Olympic Games
The final day winners of the Ancient Olympics Games in Greece would be rewarded with olive leaves near the temple of Zeus and maybe a purple silk robe or/and money
if they lost they would be very frustrated and think that their gods don't like them
the ancient Greeks came up with the idea of the Olympics. the partakers would run naked. only men were allowed to watch and take part.
A laurel is made up off leaves and ancient greece olympic winners would wear them if they had won a olympic game
They said "we art boredest!" and they built thyselves an olympic game in which you would fling thyself into a pit of mud. I dont know lol
Men went to war and competed in ancient Olympic games if they weren't at war the would go to theaters and watch comedies or tragedies
The hero would be whoever won the best at the Olympics. They would have won a lot of the strength and training games during the time.
the winner wuld get a crown of olive leaves and 2nd and 3rd place winners would get nothing.
If the olympic games ended they would still do what they are doing like training but they just couldn't go in the olympic games.
If they cheat the would get killed by the gods.
