View looking northwest at the Exedra of Herodes Atticus.  This was built in A.D. 160.  This semicircular area was more than a mere meeting area, but was in fact a large water fountain, a nymphaeum, that actually provided water to the whole sacred area, Altis, of Olympia.

This same Herodes Atticus built the “Theater of Herodes Atticus” on the southern slope of the Acropolis in Athens..
