Hermes and Dionysus

Todd

The Greeks held their Olympics here in Olympia, 150 km from Athens. The Olympics were held in honour of Zeus, the main man on Mount Olympus, and the statue of Zeus in the temple of Olympia was one of the seven wonders of the world. Unfortunately, didn't survive to the present day. Artefacts from the temple can be found in the archeological museum in town, which is one of the best in Greece - and that is saying quite a lot!
