Athens. Greece. View of one of the two side distinctive herms (ancient stone carved head or bust) located at the curved end of the stadium. The stone sculpture depicts two male figures, one young male figure is facing towards the grandstand, and the other an older beared male figure is facing the track. The Panathenaic (Kallimarmaro) stadium 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 ancient Panathenaic games (part of the larger religious festival, the Panathenaia).
