Ancient site of Olympia. The Stadion (or stadium) of Olympia.
As it was customary in early Greek stadiums, the spectators sat on the slopes and the only stone seats were for the judges (hellanodikai).
The stadium's course is about 200 yards long, which is equivalent to 600 Olympic feet (Andronicos, 41), or 191.78 meters long (Mee & Spawforth, 291). The capacity of the stadium is estimated at 40,000 spectators.
The present restoration emulates a 4th c. BCE version with later additions, which was built on an earlier, smaller stadium.
