Review quote

"This is a sound and highly entertaining study of the practice and the social implications of sports in Greece and Rome, not only as they made their appearance at the Olympic and other games, or in spectacles in the Roman Circus, but also in daily life, as a pastime in the village." Leo Heirman, Classical Outlook"
