In Ancient Greece sports became such a prominent part of their culture that the Greeks created the Olympic Games, which in ancient times were held every four years in Olympia, an area of flat land and an ancient religious centre in the west of the Peloponnese. The Ancient Olympic Games featured mainly athletic but also combat and chariot racing events.
During the Games, all conflicts among the participating city-states were postponed until the Games were finished. The Olympics were of fundamental religious importance, featuring sporting events alongside ritual sacrifices honoring both Zeus and Pelops, divine hero and mythical king of Olympia.
The winners of the events were admired and immortalized in poems and statues. The Olympic Games reached their zenith in the 6th and 5th centuries BC, but then gradually declined in importance as the Romans gained power and influence in Greece. Scholars think that the last games were held in 393 AD.
