Olympia, Sanctuary of Zeus - 2015
Type of Operation
Olympia, Sanctuary of Zeus. R. Senff (DAI) reports on investigations of the W end of the S wall of Stadium II (Fig. 1). W of the so-called Base XX in front of the Echo Hall a trial was made (E4). The discovery of late antique glass fragments under the foundation of the Base mean that it must belong to the late antique or early Christian period. There was no distinct boundary of the wall-base of Stadium II here; on the contrary, the base of the South Wall went without marking up to the Altis. In the neighbouring sondage 2 (E2), on the other hand, it turned out that at the W end of the running track there originally lay a stone threshold now only visible in a robbing trench, in front of which ran a moat.
