The Laurel Wreath

a. In ancient Greece, victorious athletes during the Olympics, which are held to this day, were crowned with a wreath made of laurel leaves. The Laurel Tree has associations with the Sun God, Apollo, and the tree is known as well for its medicinal virtues. While athletes are no longer given laurel wreathes, the laurel crown is identified with achieving victory, success, and excellence. Writers and poets who were given awards for their work were called Poet Laurettes, and still are to this day!  In ancient times, laurel crowns were a sign of victory. Kings wore them in addition to crowns of gold and a laurel wreath was awarded to a victor in battle or to those who excelled in their chosen field. Often used in the plural.

b. Honor and glory won for great achievement. Often used in the plural.

tr.v. lau·reled also lau·relled, lau·rel·ing also lau·rel·ling, lau·rels also lau·rels.

1. To crown with laurel.

2. To honor, especially with an award or a prize.
