I was wondering, when was the last ancient olympics held?
Answer Hi, The last ancient Olympics were held in 393 AD, when they were abolished by the Roman Emperor Theodosius. In 380 A.D. in fact emperor Theodosius had issued an edict that made Christianity the one and only religion of the State, that is the official faith of the Roman Empire. Later, he banned all pre-Christian religions, closed all pagan temples and forbade any pagan festivals, which included the Olympic Games which dated back to 776 BC. Have a nice day Maria _______________________________________________ NOTA BENE. Greece became part of the Roman Empire in 146 BC and the games continued until 393/394 AD.
