Top Two Rows - Areas near the ancient Temple of Zeus, and near where the Olympic flame is first lit for each Olympiad.
Bottom Row - The world's first Olympic Stadium, where ancient footraces over a distance of 1 stadia (about 190 yards) were conducted. Eric is standing at the finish line (I believe).

Top Row - Some statues and artifacts inside the archaeological museum at the Olympia site.
Bottom Row - Ancient Roman and/or Greek helmets; model of what the ancient site may have looked like (with stadium at the lower right and Temple of Zeus near the middle).
