What did the Circus Maximus winning charioteer receive as first prize?

Winning charioteers were considered stars, and were rewarded for their victories with fame, money and glory. In most cases, the owner of the chariot was not the driver, rather a family member, slave or hired professional. Racers wore the color-coded tunics of their factions, securely fastened with leather straps around their waist and across their back. Their left hand was used to steer the course, and their right to wield the whip. The famous Fuscus, a charioteer for the Green faction, was a slave who died at age 24 after winning 53 victories.
