Silver Cup first Olympic Marathon on display in Athens

The Price of the first Olympic marathon is on display in the Acropolis, in Athens, Greece. The silver cup was up for sale in April this year (see corresponding posting).

By then they estimated the cup to raise some 200.000 euros but the final result hit the 650.000 euro. The cup was sold by the grandson of the first time winner and was purchased by another Greek who wanted to keep the cup in Greece as part of their national heritage.

First on display in the Acropolis, from September 2013 it will on display in a cultural centre.
