Panathenaic Stadium

Leoforos Vasileos Konstantinou, Athens

The modern times restoration was conducted by G. Averof at the end of the 19th century, for the 1st Olympic Games in 1896. The Stadium was rebuilt with marble from Mt Penteli, the same kind that was used 2,400 years before, for the construction of the Parthenon on the Acropolis. It could now hold over 60,000 spectators. The total cost was 1 million GrD, a huge amount of money in those days.
