Also, cf. N. Yalouris (ed.), The Eternal Olympics, New York, 1979, pp. 235-239 for a commentary on chariot racing. The four-horse chariot (tethrippon) race was introduced to the Olympic Games in 680 B.C. The horses were yoked together in a single line. The two in the middle were called zygioi (yoke-horses), and the two on the outside seiraphoroi (trace-horses). The strongest and liveliest horse was normally yoked on the right-hand side. This position was given to the strongest, fastest animals, so that it would be easy to make the turns. The charioteer was a specialist in the technique of chariot racing, who undertook to drive the chariot on behalf of the owner of the horses. The victory and glory went to the owner, who received the crown, thus some of the victors in chariot races at Olympia were women (kynsika) and children, and towns such as Argos and Thebes.
