Discus (Isthm. I, 18-25)
And in the games they attempted the greatest number of
contests, and adorned their homes with tripods and caldrons
and goblets of gold, tasting victorious garlands.
Their excellence shines clearly, in the naked footraces and
in the shield-clashing hoplite races, and in all the deeds of
their hands, in flinging the spear and whenever they hurled
the stone discus.
