Das Panathinaiko-Stadion (griechisch Παναθηναϊκό Στάδιο) in Athen (auch als Kallimarmaro bekannt) ist das Olympiastadion der ersten Olympischen Spiele der Neuzeit im Jahre 1896. Es wurde als Rekonstruktion auf den Fundamenten des antiken Stadions gebaut und befindet sich im Athener Stadtzentrum.

The Panathenaic Stadium or Panathinaiko (Greek: Παναθηναϊκό στάδιο), also known as the Kallimarmaro (Καλλιμάρμαρο, meaning the "beautifully marbled"), is a multi-purpose stadium used for several events and athletics in Athens that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of an ancient Greek stadium, the Panathenaic is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white marble[citation needed] (from Mount Penteli) and is one of the oldest in the world.
