97.3 m x 11.5 m; outer Doric column diameter: ca. 0.95 m; intercolumniation: 2.15 m; after a major repair, smaller columns, diameter: 0.75 m; intercolumniation: ca. 2.07 m.
Outer colonnade, possibly Corinthian, opening west, and an inner Ionic colonnade.
Called the Echo Hall in antiquity because supposedly an echo would repeat in it 7 times. The name Painted Stoa (Stoa Poikile) refers to its decoration. Possibly constructed by Philip of Macedon, the building's history is very confused, and it underwent a number of changes, including the construction of a rear hall parallel to it and attachment to the tunnel leading to the stadium. In front of the Echo Hall were numerous dedications.
