Rabbit Trail: Kotinos

Estimated Time: 5 minutes

The kotinos is a wreath made out of olive branches. According to tradition, the wreath was made from "wild olive leaves from a sacred tree near the temple of Zeus at Olympia."

This wreath was the reward for winning the ancient Olympics. The reward was an honor and not money.
