Stadium of Kadyanda. It is a Lycian city dating from the 5th century B.C, with Roman additions. Across the city centre, from west to east, runs a long open space some 10 meters wide and over 90 meters long. Despite its dimensions & its unusual position, there is no doubt that this is a stadium, since inscriptions relate two athletic festivals celebrated at Cadianda. The original length is uncertain, as the ends are destroyed. #stadium #archeology
