Being Greek meant two things: playing sports and going to the Olympic games, which was a fundamental mark of their culture.
Reaching Olympia was a humongous task as it involved a long journey covering the hostile territory. An Olympic truce in which people from enemy countries were allowed to pass through was effective though still filled with looming danger.
The Ancient Olympic games were a treat for Greek spectators with 24 hour barbeques and famous historians like Herodotus reciting their new historical work.
The many thousand spectators were mostly male, relishing the various elements of the games, like the sacrifice of a 100 cows to Zeus, covering their appetite for meat.
