Above is the Tempole of Zeus at nemea. It is being enthusiastically reconstructed and is also the site of one of the four Panhellenic games–the Nemean games.
Gee, these are random. this is a photo of the intrepid David Head singing the Oedipus Rex song (Tom Lear) from the altar stone of the theatre at Epidauros. In theory, one is able to hear words spoken (or sung) in an unamplified voice; in fact, there was a great deal of ambient noise in the theatre that day and we could not hear clearly–but in a hushed theatre, I am certain we would have heard it all. To compensate, David reprised the song on the bus home from Sounion last night.

Here we are in the Sanctuary of Aesclepios (at Epidauros) being healed by the balmy air and good sleep.

The group heads up the paved entry ramp toward the Lion Gate at Mycenae.
Hmmmm—more Nemean considerations.
Of course, we had to pass throught the Nemean vaulted passage to the stadium.
What goes in the stadium must come back out.
