Just east of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, this stadium hosted the first Olympic Games of modern times in 1896. Originally built in the 4th century BC as a venue for the Panathenaic athletic contests. The seats were rebuilt in Pentelic marble by Herodes Atticus in the 2nd century AD, and faithfully restored in 1895.
