Ancient Nemea’s Stadium to Reopen on Wednesday

February 1, 2023

CORINTHOS – The Stadium of Ancient Nemea will reopen on Wednesday to visitors, Alternate Development & Investments Minister Christos Dimas said on Tuesday.

The 4th century BC stadium had shut down over lack of security issues. The effort to reopen it involved the Society for the Revival of Nemean Games, the Nemea mayor, the Antiquities Ephorate of Corinthia, and the Culture ministry, all of whom Dimas thanked.

“Ancient Nemea is one of the most significant archaeological sites of Greece. The importance of its Museum, the Temple of Zeus and the Stadium attract the interest of thousands of visitors from Greece and abroad annually, and have turned the region into a cultural attraction. It is something we all owe Stephen Miller,” Dimas said, citing the late archaeologist and professor (1942-1921). Miller devoted his career to the NE Peloponnesian site’s excavation, particularly of the temple and the stadium, and founded the society for the modern Nemean games.
