The 3rd Annual Ancient Olympics

by on September 24, 2018

This September saw the 3rd annual Wake Forest Ancient Olympics, attended by students and alums of Professor Gellar-Goad’s first-year seminar, Beware the Ides, Beware the Hemlock: Roleplaying Crisis in Ancient Greece & Rome.  Participants recited hymns to the gods and victory odes (epinikia), dressed in chitons, feasted on authentic Ancient Greek foods, and competed in wrestling, chariot-racing, running, hoplite racing, javelin, discus, and long jump.  Members of Eta Sigma Phi and the campus community joined the festivities!  Photos by Jake Gellar-Goad.  Click on each photo to make it bigger.
