Spartan women exercised nude.
As mentioned in a previous post, Greek athletes competed in the nude. Actually, exercise was generally done in their gymnasiums sans clothing. So in Sparta, the women followed the same regimen as the men. They would also oil their bodies before races like the men.
Suffice to say, gymnasiums were an all-male environment in Athens. And unless she was a slave or a prostitute, a Greek woman walking around naked anywhere other than Sparta would be in big, big trouble.
Tune in next week for more about the Spartan women!
