"With a victory at the games an athlete acquired glory: the herald proclaimed his name, the name of his father and his city, and the president of the games offered him a victory crown. At his homecoming, he was celebrated again and he received a reward. Such fame was only temporary, but there were ways to perpetuate it. One possibility (mainly in the fifth century BC) was the distribution of a victory song. Because of their high literary quality, the victory songs by Pindar or Bacchylides were still read centuries after they were written. Victorious athletes were also immortalize with statues in bronze or stone and with inscriptions, on the base of a statue or on a separate slab."
