Athens. Greece. View of the symbol of the Olympic Games, the five interlocking rings at the Panathenaic (Kallimarmaro) stadium which was used for the first international Olympic games of the modern era in 1896. The completely marble stadium occupies the exact site of the original, built in 330BC which was used for the Panathenaic games. The current stadium was reconstructed from the remains of the original and used for the 1896 Olympic Games in Athens. In 1896 it had the capacity to seat 80,000 spectators, which has been reduced to 45,000 now. The Stadium hosted the archery competition and the finish of the Marathon in in the 2004 Olympic Games.
