Hestia's Stoa

Hestia's Stoa was located at the southeast of the Altis, almost next to the Stoa of Echo. The building had rooms in the back side and belonged to the sanctuary of Hestia. It was built in the 4th century BC with material that came from the east facade of the Temple of Zeus taken when the facade was repaired after the strong earthquake of 373 BC.
