Last Ancient Olympics385 was the last recorded games but it is probable that the last games were in 393 (despite some speculation that the games were held for about 30 years after this date). The games were almost certainly banned in 394 by the Roman Emperor Theodosius I who abolished the Games, as part of a series of reforms against pagan practices.
