The fabrics that the Greeks used for their clothing were sometimes spun in the home often into a heavy wool material , or made from linen fabric that was imported. The pieces of fabric were folded around the body, and pinned together at the side seams and shoulders, as well as being belted.
Though it might sound as if the Greeks walked around wearing plain potato sacks, their clothing would have been dyed bright colors and would have been decorated with ornate patterns.
The style and type of the garment depended on who was wearing it, and the job or function required of the person. There were several types of garments, derived from a basic tunic.
The tunic was worn by both men and women , and varied in length according to job and gender. It was often tied at the waist, and might also have been pinned at the seams, depending on the style of the garment. A chiton was a type of tunic worn by Greek men, and was often made of a lighter linen material, as men were often outdoors more, and would require more comfortable clothing especially in the summer.

It could be draped over both shoulders, or over only one. When it was draped over one shoulder, usually the left, it was known as an exomie. This type of chiton was usually worn for horseback riding, work, or exercise. Usually made from a heavier wool material, this garment was made from a large rectangular piece of fabric, and could be draped and fastened with buttons, pins, or brooches in different ways to reflect different styles.
Ancient Greek Clothing
A peplos was worn as a full-length garment, because a proper Greek woman revealed nothing. In colder weather, Greeks wore a cloak over their tunics for warmth, known as a himation. This garment was usually made of wool, and was fashioned from a rectangular piece of cloth that was draped over the person, sort of like a Roman toga.

It served a dual purpose, especially for men. The himation came in handy for soldiers away from home, also serving as a warm blanket on a cold winter night. Other types of cloaks worn by the Greeks included the epiblema , a shawl worn by Greek women, and the chlamys , a short cloak worn by young Greek males. The Greeks were not particularly fond of shoes, usually eschewing them, especially at home.

But on special occasions or on matters of business, Greeks would wear leather sandals or boots with their tunics. However, it was not uncommon for a Greek to go barefoot for his entire life. And from time to time further events were added, including a footrace in which athletes ran in partial armour and contests for heralds and for trumpeters. The program, however, was not nearly so varied as that of the modern Olympics.
There were neither team games nor ball games, and the athletics track and field events were limited to the four running events and the pentathlon mentioned above. Chariot races and horse racing , which became part of the ancient Games, were held in the hippodrome south of the stadium. In the early centuries of Olympic competition, all the contests took place on one day; later the Games were spread over four days, with a fifth devoted to the closing-ceremony presentation of prizes and a banquet for the champions.
In most events the athletes participated in the nude.
The ancient Olympic Games
Through the centuries scholars have sought to explain this practice. Theories have ranged from the eccentric to be nude in public without an erection demonstrated self-control to the usual anthropological, religious, and social explanations, including the following: 1 nudity bespeaks a rite of passage , 2 nudity was a holdover from the days of hunting and gathering , 3 nudity had, for the Greeks, a magical power to ward off harm, and 4 public nudity was a kind of costume of the upper class.
Historians grasp at dubious theories because, in Judeo-Christian society, to compete nude in public seems odd, if not scandalous. Yet ancient Greeks found nothing shameful about nudity, especially male nudity. Therefore, the many modern explanations of Greek athletic nudity are in the main unnecessary.
The Olympic Games were technically restricted to freeborn Greeks. Most of the participants were professionals who trained full-time for the events. These athletes earned substantial prizes for winning at many other preliminary festivals, and, although the only prize at Olympia was a wreath or garland, an Olympic champion also received widespread adulation and often lavish benefits from his home city.
