Nem’ean Games (The).
 
One of the four great national festivals of Greece, celebrated at Nem’ca, in Ar’golis, every alternate year, the first and third of each Olympiad. The victor’s reward was at first a crown of olive-leaves, but subsequently a garland of ivy. Pindar has eleven odes in honour of victors at these games.   1
