The Crypte was a passageway built around 200 BC, in the Altis, in the northeast corner of the Stoa of Echo, right where the terrace of Treasuries ended. It was a construction that connected the Stadium with the sanctuary, it had a stone arched roof with a Corinthian order propylon to the side of the temple.
