Olympia museum

All of the archaelogical sites have museums, displaying the artifacts, providing context, and protecting them in a controlled environment. The museums in Greece were all good, but the one at Olympia was superb.

The statue of Hermes on the left, traditionally attributed to Praxiteles, was discovered in the Temple of Hera in 1877.

The Paeonios statue of Nike was found around the same time; I love the flowing draperies; it really feels as though she is in motion.
