Pindar was a 5th-century BC Ancient Greek poet who is remembered for his poetic odes. These odes were written in honor of victors and champions of athletic games and contests. He grouped these odes into four distinct groups of games – Olympian, Pythian, Nemean, and Isthmian Games.  These odes praised footraces, chariot-races, wrestling matches, horse-races, and even flute-playing. Each of these odes begins with some sort of homage to a Greek god or Muse and then aligns the athletic champion with a mythological god or hero – quite the praise! 

 

This late 16th-century printing was edited by Henri Estienne and published in Lyon in 1598 by Pillehote. Henri Estienne, also known as Stephanus, was notable for his editions in Greek and Latin parallel translations – much like this printing.
