Kotinos was a wreath from a wild olive branch with which they crowned the winner of the Olympic Games of antiquity. The branches of the olive tree, which was located near the temple of Zeus, were cut by a “pais sibling” (ie a boy whose parents were both alive) with gold scissors. Then he would take them to the temple of Hera and place them on an ivory table. From there, the Greek judges, the judges of the ancient Olympic Games, took them, made wreaths and offered them to the winners as a prize.
