Athletics and Mathematics in Archaic Corinth: The Origins of the Greek “Stadion” (Memoir 206)
David Gilman Romano
This work is a study of the origins of the ancient Greek stadium, especially with regard to the archaeological evidence from the Archaic & Classical sites of Corinth, Isthmia, Halieis & Olympia. The earliest remains of the Greek “stadion” come from the Peloponnesos, a region of southern Greece, although the architectural structure eventually became well known all over the Greek & Roman world. The author also includes the ancient evidence for the initial appearance of the world “stadion” in the Greek language & its early use in the 6th & 5th centuries B.C. The primary component of this work is the most recent archaeological research from Ancient Corinth concerning the Archaic “dromos” & the Early Classical starting line & its significance for the study of Greek & Roman athletics, as well as the understanding of early Greek mathematics.
