This is the original Watercolour painting by Peter Jackson.

A scene depicting runners in an athletic event during an Olympic games in ancient Greece. The artwork was featured in Treasure 29th July 1967 in an article about what happened to athletes who were caught cheating.

The main form of cheating seems to have been accepting bribes and what happened was an ancient form of name and shame. If found guilty the athletes had a statue built just outside the Olympic grounds so that their infamy would live on. Their city state would have to pay compensation. The art was later re-used in the Look and Learn Book 1980.
