Rest Of The Day






Temple of Pythian Apollo- The stadium- and the little odein
This is the afternoon of the previous post! We decided to go to the well-known great old stadium of Rhodos!
At the top of the hill, there is the ancient acropolis, which dominates the whole of the settlement area. Built at the same time as the city, it was an inseparable part of it from the very beginning, surrounded by its walls. It was kept free of houses in order for public buildings and temples to be erected there. Aelius Aristides describes it as “filled with flat areas and groves”. 
At the highest point there stands- partly restored today- the 3rd century BC Doric temple of the Pythian Apollo, built from local sandstone. To the north-east of the temple there was another building, which was believed to have been an Artemision. The stadium and a little odein with an audience capacity of 800 which was probably used by well known Rhodian orators, have been restored to the east of the temple of Apollo.
The athletic tradition of the inhabitants of the island is well known also. It produced great figures and Rhodian athletes were repeatedly winners in the Panhellenic Games, brining glory to their homeland and their families. Most prominent among them was one family, which not only its founder Diagoras was an Olympic champion, but also his three sons, Damagetos, Akousilaos and Dorieus. The family has given its name to the road which runs in front of the stadium (Diagoras Street). 
This are just few of zillion pictures from my album!
