Itinerary B

[4]The exultant celebrations of the Akragantines

Diodorus tells us that Esseneto, a famous Akragantine athlete, won the stadion at two consecutive editions of the Olympics.
The stadion was a discipline similar to today’s running races.
For this reason the athlete, returning from the competitions, entered the city with an escort of 300 chariots pulled by white horses, in a solemn and triumphant entrance, while the crowd cheered him on loudly.
According to Diodorus, the exultant festivities took place in the Akragas stadium, which we have not found.
