Localizado el hipódromo de Delfos - Arqueología, Historia Antigua y Medieval - Terrae Antiqvae

Localizado el hipódromo de Delfos - Arqueología, Historia Antigua y Medieval - Terrae Antiqvae | Sciences & Arts | Scoop.it
Fechado en el 590-580 a.C., es ciertamente el hipódromo griego más antiguo, y el segundo en importancia después del –hoy perdido– hipódromo de la antigua Olimpia. En Delfos compitieron con sus carros destacados dirigentes políticos, como Clístenes, tirano de Sición, y el tirano de Siracusa,Hierón. Aquí muy probablemente, además, participó y obtuvo la victoria en la carrera de carros de los Juegos Píticos del 474 a.C. el famoso Auriga, la estatua de bronce del Museo de Delfos.
