Games and sanctuaries in ancient Greece : Olympia, Delphi, Isthmia, Nemea, Athens by Panos Valavanēs( Book )

As religious rituals, rites of passage, and celebrations of the body, athletics were deeply woven into the fabric of ancient Greek life. Modeled after physical exercises and competitions that existed in earlier Near Eastern cultures, hundreds of athletic contests took place throughout the ancient Greek world. In the eighth century B.C., the games held at Olympia began to surpass all others in their fame and glory and gave rise to a sporting tradition that engages and enthralls the world to this day. Published to coincide with the return of the Olympics to Greece in 2004, this thoroughly researched book studies sport in ancient Greece over a span of a millennium and a half-from the earliest mentions of athletics in Homer's Iliad and other literary sources, through the Classical age, and into the Hellenistic, Roman, and late antique periods. With more than five hundred illustrations, the book tours the monumental stadiums, bathhouses, temples, and other structures built to host the athletic events and to house the wealth of art created to pay tribute to the athletes, gods, and heroes of the games

The Acropolis through its museum by Panos Valavanēs( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Acropolis through its Museum is not simply a guidebook to the works of art exhibited at the museum. These are the stimulus for synthesizing the history of the Sacred Rock as part of the cultural and the broader historical process of ancient Athens. The book follows the visitor's tour of the museum, so that he can read about the antiquities displayed before him. However, it is written in such a way that through independent inquiry the reader is able to approach the subjects more deeply and to understand the preconditions -- political, social, economic, ideological, artistic and technological -- that led to the creation of the unique monuments on the Acropolis."--Book flap
