HELLENISTIC BRONZE NUDE DISCOBOLOS Posed in the iconic stance, about to let loose his discus. 2nd-1st Century BC

A Panathenaic amphora with a depiction of a winged Nike (Victory) watching a wrestling match waiting to crown the victor. These amphoras were given as prizes in the Panathenaic Games. Depending on the sport and the victory, a winner could receive from 4 of these amphoras to 40 of them- all filled with 36 kilos of olive oil. The athlete could then trade this oil- and the amphoras. The oil was sold all over the Mediterranean and it was especially sought after by young athletes.

Greek wrestling was the most popular organized sport in Ancient Greece. A point was scored when one player touched the ground with his back, hip, shoulder, or tapped out due to a submission-hold or was forced out of the wrestling-area. Three points had to be scored to win the match.
