Ὀλύμπια Edit

Ὀλύμπια πόλις ἐστὶν ἐν τῇ Ἀρκαδία.

ἀρχόμεθα καταγράφων τὴν χώραν ἐν ᾗ Ὀλύμπιά ἐστιν, Ἦλις.

Ἦλις χώρα ὁμαλὴ καὶ εὔκαρπός ἐστιν ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἐν βορέῳ ἑσπέρα τῆς Ἀρκαδίας ὄρων. ἐν νότῳ ἕῳ, ὅπου ῥεῖ ὁ Ἀλφείος, καλοὶ λοφοί εἰσιν. ὅπου ὁ Κλαδέος ῥεῖ εἰς τὸν Ἀλφείον, Ὀλύμπιά ἐστι σὺν τῷ αὐτοῦ τέμενῳ ἱερῳ. εἰς τούτον τὸν τοῦ Διὸς χωρίον πάνελλενικὸν ἀθλητοὶ τε καὶ θεατοὶ συνήρξαντο ἐν ἕκαστῳ τέταρτῳ ἐνιαυτῷ, οἳ ἐκ πασῶν τῶν χωρῶν μεσογαιῶν ἥκον. ἐν δὲ τῷ μέγιστῳ ἱερῳ τὸ τοῦ Διὸς ἄγαλμα ὑπὸ Φειδίας ᾖν, ὃ ᾖν χρύσεον καὶ ἐλεφάντινον καὶ εἷς τῶν ἑπτὰ τεράτων τῆς γῆς.
