    The first recorded Ancient Olympic Games were in 776 BC.The Games were held in a village called Olympia and thats why they are called Oympics!The Olympics were also part of a religious event. They were held in honour of Zeus, the father of the gods and were a big celebration.

  6. M Pandor says:

    Apollo is the god of music, playing a golden lyre. The Archer, far shooting with a silver bow. The god of healing who taught man medicine. The god of light. The god of truth, who can not speak a lie. His tree was the laurel. The crow his bird. The dolphin his animal.
