This book is a comprehensive examination of Olympic victor lists.
The origins, development, content, and structure of Olympic victor
lists are explored and explained, and a number of important
questions, such as the source and reliability of the year of 776
for the first Olympics, are addressed. Olympic victor lists emerge
as a clearly defined type of literature that is best understood as
a group of closely related texts. This book offers a fresh
perspective on works by familiar writers such as Diodorus Siculus
and a sense of the potential importance of less-well-known authors
such as Phlegon of Tralleis.
