Olympic Victor Monuments and Greek Athletic Art


Walter Woodburn Hyde (Editor)

Series: Historical Manuscripts

BISAC: ART015030

The purpose of the present work is to study what is known of one of the most important genres of Greek sculpture—the monuments erected at Olympia and elsewhere in the Greek world in honor of victorious athletes at the Olympic games. Since only meagre remnants of these monuments have survived, the work is in the main concerned with the attempt to reconstruct their various types and poses.
