Photographer's Note

This is the marble startline in the ancient Stadium at Olympia. In the archaic times the athletic games wer held here. It was 212,54 m long and 28,50 m wide. There were no seats, apart from the stone exedra of the Hellanodikai (judges) standing opposite the altar of the goddess Demeter Chamyne, and the embarkment could easily seat 45000 or more spectators.
