(Charioteers, who generally started out as slaves, took these risks because there were
fortunes to be won. Successful racers who survived would be set free and would
grow enormously wealthy. A Roman poet suggested that it was possible to make as
much as 15 bags of gold for winning a single race. In the days of the Roman republic,
the races featured four color-themed teams, the Reds, the Whites, the Greens and the Blues,
each of which attracted fanatical support. By the sixth century A.D., after the western half of
the empire fell, only two of these survivedthe Greens had incorporated the Reds, and the
Whites had been absorbed into the Blues. In the sixth century A.D., after the western half of
the empire fell, only two of these survivedthe Greens had incorporated the Reds, and the
Whites had been absorbed into the Blues. But the two remaining teams were wildly popular
in the Eastern, or Byzantine, Empire, which had its capital at Constantinople, and their
supporters were as passionate as everso much so that they were frequently responsible for
bloody riots.)
