S) Scene 6: Echo Hall 
The Echo Hall was built in the second half of the 4" century 
B.C. and the building played an important role to create a new 
landscape of the sanctuary. The screen of the columns marked 
the east boarder of the sanctuary and articulated its space very 
clearly. With the erection of the Echo Hall, the sanctuary was 
enclosed and was strengthened its sacred precinct. (Fig.7)

6) Treasuries 
The northern boarder of the sanctuary had been marked from 
the Archaic period by the treasuries which were dedicated by 
various cities. They were built at the foot of Kronos Hill and 
higher approximately 5 m from the ground level of the 
sanctuary. Thus, a row of some ten treasuries on higher place 
made the space more monumental and grandiose with the 
staircases which extended along the front of the treasuries 
(Fig.8). In the first half of the 4" century B.C., the Metroon was 
built right in front of these tresuries, and it added the 
monumental atmosphere around the northeast corner of the 
sacntuary. At the west end of these treasuries, there was erected 
a semicircular Nympheion. 
7) Scene 6: View toward the south from the treasuries 
There were a row of sculptures of athletes who won the 
Olympic games in front of the grand staircase. We see all 
around in the sanctuaries.
