|Description ||The 'Workshop of Pheidias' at Olympia. This is said to be the workshop where Pheidias created the chryselephantine Statue of Zeus, one of the seven wonders of the world.
The identification is shaky. It's said to rest on an artefact with the name 'Pheidias' scratched on it. Rumour has it that a German archaeology student later confessed to scratching the name.
However, the workshop is said to be the same size and orientation as the Temple of Zeus at Olympia? So which is more unlikely, this was where a wonder was created, or a German archaeology student has a sense of humour.
