Aryballos is a research group for the study of ancient sport founded by scholars working in Canada and Canadian scholars working abroad. We support research on ancient sport through the collaboration of our members, the organization of conferences and panels, and the dissemination of research and information.

There is a long and rich history of ancient sport research in Canada. Aryballos represents and carries on this legacy, promoting excellence in research, interdisciplinarity, and internationalism.

Aryballos was founded in 2014 after a conference in Graz, Austria, in honour of the 25th anniversary of the journal Nikephoros, where Canadians and Canadian universities were well represented. Building on this foundation, we support and promote the study of ancient sport in Canada and internationally, and encourage the study of sport as a central part of cultural history.
