An ancient stadium

This is the stadium (Hellenistic) in Messene (I should probably try to post pictures from other places as well) and I find it interesting that the stone seating only cover one of the ends (and it looked like that was the read deal, not a modern reconstruction). Notice that the low wall in the foreground is a Roman addition from when place was used as amphitheatre.
