boxing or pankration?[edit]

In the lede it says "boxing or wrestling"....by "boxing" is the Pankration not what is actually meant; i.e. boxing as linked was not an ancient sport; pankration was of course both wrestling and boxing at the same time; my impression of hte palestra was it was used for the pankration, which is usually rendered as "wrestling"....but included punching and, well, kicking and scratching, too....(and biting? or was it against the rules? ... not much was...).Skookum1 (talk) 23:49, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
