Abstract


Sixth-century Athens combined earlier prize traditions to produce the most artistically significant local prizes, inscribed Panathenaic amphoras filled with olive oil. Panathenaic amphoras were an eclectic and yet innovative development s civic, self-declaratory prizes of material and symbolic value. Originally the prize olive oil came from sacred trees and was thus the gift of Athena. Panathenaic prize was a combination of elements Panhellenic and local games.
