Olympic Dress

Vase paintings of the Aegean and Homeric periods show Olympic Dressthat the Greeks trained and competed in the Olympic Games wearing short or specially made aprons. Postage stamps of Cyprus and Greece have also reflected this attire. The apron-dressed runners that have been reproduced on the Olympic stamp from Cyprus had been taken from the design of a Mycenaean jug. The Greek Olympic stamp   also features the apron-clad wrestler as depicted on the ancient Greek amphora.
