Olympic Stadium

Shortly before the 22nd Olympic Games at Moscow in 1980, Greece issued five stamps representing the five ancient Greek stadia aimed at acquainting collectors and the public in general about the sites where the institution of the Olympic Games took birth, matured and functioned in its authentic form. As we can see on the stamp the track early Olympic Stadiumis surrounded by massive sloping embankments of earth for the accommodation of the wpectators. in the ancient Olympic stadium there were no stone seats in the stadium except for a box on the south side where the Chief Judgeds of the Games sat. This 4th century stadium has been fully excavated and its track and embankments restored so that it may be seen in its full splendour.
