Geocache Description:

Olympic Stadium in Olympia

"Das Stadion wurde nach den Ausgrabungen 1961 wieder in der Gestalt hergerichtet, die es im 4. Jhd. v. Chr. erhalten hatte (Stadionphase III). Gegenüber dem früheren Stadion (II) war es um 75 Meter nach Nordosten verschoben worden. Insgesamt war das Stadion 213 Meter lang. Die Länge der Laufbahn betrug, zwischen den noch heute erhaltenen Rillen der Start- und Zielschwellen gemessen, 192,28 Meter, ihre Breite etwa 31 bis 32 Meter. Sie ist von einfachen Graswällen umgeben, auf denen rund 45.000 Zuschauer Platz fanden. Aus Stein war auf einer Längsseite eine kleine Tribüne errichtet, die den Kampfrichtern diente und auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite ein Steinaltar, der der obersten Priesterin des Heratempels (Demeter) vorbehalten war. Als Zugang für die Athleten diente ein überwölbter Gang, der von der Altis unter dem westlichen Besucherwall hindurchführt. Das antike Längenmaß eines Stadions war 600 Fuß lang und entspricht, regional unterschiedlich, einer Länge zwischen 176,50 und 197 Meter. Bei den Wettkämpfen wurde in Richtung Zeusaltar, d. h. in Richtung der Altis gelaufen."

Ich würde mich sehr über dein schönstes Olympia-Photo freuen.

"The stadium at the archaeological site of Olympia, Greece is located to the east of the sanctuary of Zeus. It was the location of many of the sporting events at the Ancient Olympic Games.

The stadium was a holy place for the ancient Greeks, as this is where sporting activities dedicated to Zeus were held.

The track is 212.54 m (697.3 ft) long and 28.5 m (94 ft) wide and surrounded by grassy banks on all sides. All the seats were made of mud and on the southern slope there was a stone platform, the exedra, on which the Hellanodikai, the judges, would sit. Opposite this, on the north slope, was an altar to Demeter Chamyne. The stadium could hold 45,000 spectators."
