Ancient Greece Test: The Olympic Games
Ancient Greek legends is one of my favorite concepts in the entire study of Ancient Greece. I favor the heroes, particularly Odysseus, Herakles and Achilles. However, in this quiz we don't talk about heroes.
The Olympic Games were the most important event in all of Greece. The festival was dedicated to Zeus, the father of the Greek gods and goddesses. Greeks from all over the mainland, from Asia Minor to Italy and from Africa to Macedonia, traveled to participate in the Games.
