Harpastum
Harpastum, also known as harpustum, was a form of ball game played in the Roman Empire. The Romans also referred to it as the small ball game. The ball used was small (not as large as a follis, paganica, or football-sized ball) and hard, probably about the size and solidity of a softball. The word harpastum is the latinisation of the Greek ἁρπαστόν (harpaston),[1] the neuter of ἁρπαστός (harpastos), "carried away",[2] from the verb ἁρπάζω (harpazo), "to seize, to snatch".[3] This game was apparently a romanized version of a Greek game called phaininda (Greek: φαινίνδα[4]), or of another Greek game called ἐπίσκυρος (episkyros).[5][6][7][8][9][10] It involved considerable speed, agility and physical exertion. Little is known about the exact rules of the game, but sources indicate the game was a violent one with players often ending up on the ground

Episkyros
Episkyros
Episkyros
(Greek: ἐπίσκυρος; also called ἐπίκοινος epikoinos, "commonball")[2][3] was an ancient Greek ball game. Highly teamwork oriented,[4] the game was played between two teams of usually 12 to 14 players each, with one ball and the rules of the game which allowed using hands. Although it was a ball game, it was violent, at least in Sparta.[5] The teams would try to throw the ball over the heads of the other team. There was a white line called the skuros[4] between the teams and another white line behind each team. Teams would change the ball often until one of the team was forced behind the line at their end. In Sparta

a form of episkyros was played during an annual city festival that included five teams of 14 players.[6][7][8][9][10] It was played primarily by men but women also practiced it

Antiphanes Of Berge
Antiphanes of Berge (or Antiphanes the Younger, Greek: Ἀντιφάνης ὁ Βεργαῖος, 4th century BC) of Berge, a town near Amphipolis, was a Greek writer of the book Ἄπιστα (Apista; "Unbelievable Things"). Strabo[1] mentions him as an impostor, because Antiphanes wished the reader to believe everything in his book, which actually contained falsehoods. It was due to Antiphanes, who lived in Athens, that the Attic verb βεργαΐζειν (bergaizein) was used in the sense of telling unbelievable stories. He also wrote a work on courtesans. He is not to be confused with Antiphanes of Argos, as was done with some ancient writers. Notes[edit]^ i. p. 47, ii. pp. 102, 104; comp. Polyb. xx xiii. 12References[edit]Antiphanes of Berge, Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology.This article about an Ancient Greek writer or poet is a stub
