For every Olympic competitor, participating to the Olympic festival was the most important experience of his life. During his lifetime, Ariston, a young pankratiast from Ionic Ephesos in the Asia Minor had heard many stories of famous Olympic victors and descriptions of the famous sanctuary. In his memoir, he describes his preparation and victory in the games of the 207th Olympiad, boasting for making his father and fatherland glorious and famous forever.

Other Olympic victors became famous throughout the Greek world for their great accomplishments, through which they shared the glory of gods.
