Dr Lange described the find in Dromos
Square on the mission's blog as "unexpected".
In ancient times the Games were formed only by a one whole staduim's length running race (192,27m), called dromos
or stadion, and religious ceremonies.

In a scene from Silyonios, as Kichesias learns that his long-lost daughter is alive, he asks Dromos

Meanwhile in Memphis, as Schmidt-Colinet (1996) suggests, Alexander's tomb was associated with the complex at Saqqara featuring a lengthy dromos
leading eastwards to a temple of Nectanebo II, who was the last of the Pharaohs, and, in the revisionist version of The Alexander Romance, was also Alexander's biological father.
