Archery appears in both the works of the Greek poet Homer and the Roman poet Virgil’s Aeneid.
The objects of this sport was to aim at a moving target, often in the form of a dove, and hit it in the centre, or to hit the cord which supported the target. A prize was awarded in both cases. So there were two valid targets: one in the centre, represented by the dove, and one at the edge, the cord. In today’s version of archery, the target is a series of concentric circles, and the centre part is known as the “bull’s-eye”.
