"When Odysseus returned safely to his home after 20 years, only his dog Argos recognized him when he saw him. But you, Stratophon, after you have boxed for four hours, neither dogs nor your fellow citizens can recognize. If you will be so kind as to view your face in a mirror, you will affirm with an oath, 'I am not Stratophon.' (Lucillius, Greek Anthology 11.77, trans. W.E. Sweet)"

We're walking up the ramp into The Workshop of Phidias on the left.

Signage at the site suggests that the long, narrow building complex roped off on the right is also part of Phidias' complex. Online sources are silent.
