Description

 


The ancient Olympic Games had several running events, but originally they contained one event, the stadion race. It was the first and the oldest sport in the history of the Olympics. We created a collection of small framed relief plaques, depicting sports of the Olympic Games, that are ideal for your home or office decoration. The depiction of the stadion race is inspired by the representation of the sport on an ancient panathenaic amphora. The relief plaque is made of copper, plated in silver solution 999° and it is mounted on a wooden frame. The frame is suitable for hanging and standing, in order to be easier for you to use it

Dimensions: 14cm x 14cm x 2cm

We have created a series of medals to cover the awarding of the new games called the "Revival of the Pentathlon Games" on the island of Lemnos, in July 2015. On the back of each medal the name of the first winner of the first games that took place in Ancient Greece, is engrave.

All prices include VAT.

All of our creations are handmade and are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a guarantee of our workshop.


The ancient Olympic Games had several rumnning events. Τhe "stadion" race was the oldest contest that took place in Ancient Olympia. Until the 13th Olympiad (728 B.C.) when the games lasted for only one day, the Olympics originally contained only the stadion or "stade" race, a short sprint whose length was determined at 600 feet (192.27m), that is one Stade.

The diaulos, or two-stade race, was introduced in 724 BC, during the 14th Olympic games. A third foot race, the dolichos, was introduced in 720 BC. The last running event added to the Olympic program was the hoplitodromos, or "Hoplite race", introduced in 520 BC and traditionally run as the last race of the Olympic Games. The runners would run either a single or double diaulos in full or partial armour, carrying a shield and additionally equipped either with greaves or a helmet. 

The panathenaic amphora with the depiction of a running race is kept at the Museo Civico in Bolonia.
