Iliad and even though his existence is short, it really is important because he personifies unheroic, even antiheroic features, and these are represented in his look.

Understanding for physical prowess and attractiveness as is evidenced in many passages
in his epic poems. Hector desired to fight with Achilles and die young and attractive

that the Minoan sportsmen exercised in the nude. The close arty ties of Crete with
the Cyclades, generally, and Thera, in particular, appear to obtain the approval of
many writers. The recent excavations of S. Marinatos casts fresh light upon the
relationship of Crete with Thera in prehistoric times. "Raped by Clothing: The Nudophobic Society" of art
found on the isle of Thera demonstrate that the links with Crete were really close. An
Remarkable fresco from Thera, found in 1970, and outdated 1500 B.C.,
Signifies two kids boxing. Marinatos is of the opinion that this fresco is "the
oldest existing example of artwork symbolizing the actual anatomy of a child's body."12
Each child wears one boxing glove on his right hand, and a blue cap upon which
curls of short and long hair are apparently attached. Both youngsters, between eight
and ten years old , wear loincloths. So The 2000s have been occupied years and the Cyclades offer
no alternative to the problem of the origin of nudity in Greek athletics.
Mycenaean and Geometric Greek art certainly reveal that games in honour of
Mycenaean, Geometric, and early Archaic warriors (Fig.4) are sometimes represented as exposed
in the parts below their breastplate. This exposure is especially noticeable
during funeral games and other religious ceremonies for the dead. On three tall
Chariot races. All three stelai are decorated with chariot scenes. There is one
charioteer (Fig.5) for each chariot and all three chariot motorists are nude and
These chariot races were held as part of the
funeral ceremonies for a chieftain, and as such, were considered proper subjects
for decoration of stelai erected over graves. The so-called Silver Siege Rhyton

Complete stature, act as a shielder for four or five nude archers as they pull their bows.
In an identical scene a naked warrior comes running past them. Moreover, the Siege
Rhyton shows six collapsed nude men, who could be interpreted as the dead.13
A fragment of Mycenaean chariot krater from Enkomi (Cyprus) (Fig.6)
depicts a naked standing man figure who holds two variously interpreted
Things in his hands; in front of the nude guy there's a robed male figure who
wears a sword; in this composition little vases have been placed in the field; in
front of the robed guy there's a two horse chariot within which there are two
robed figures. It's been presumed this scene depicts a funeral ceremony
and that the vases are prizes at funeral games, like the collection of tripods on a
Dipylon vase. The most recent interpretation of this scene by M. I. Davies is
that the bare figure "may well be an ordinary athlete with what in ancient
times were two of his common characteristics: a pickaxe and either a pointed
marking stake or strigil." Davies considers that this interpretation "would cast
some light upon the conservative transmission of athletic customs and gear from the Mycenaean into the classical interval."14
A fragment of another krater from Enkomi signifies two nude figures
