The Destroyed House of Oinomaos

The Destroyed House of Oinomaos was a ruined ancient residence in the Valley of Olympia in Elis, Greece.

Near the house was a tomb, housing a smoking throne and broken chariots, as well as an ancient stele.

History

This building and the associated tomb were believed to belong to Oinomaos, a legendary king of Pisa. As an oracle had foretold his son-in-law would kill him, Oinomaos was loathe to let his daughter marry, and challenged all her would-be-suitors to a fatal chariot race. Oinomaos' own end came as Pelops challenged him, and won with the horse of Poseidon.[1]

During the 428 BCE Olympic Games, the lovers Laneira and Menon robbed their families' treasuries within the Sanctuary of Olympia and hid within the ruins. A while later, the Spartan misthios Kassandra followed them there, as part of her quest to find the thieves. Following her, Makar and Lelex the Ionian reached the place as well, and confronted their children.[2]
