Further east is the "South-East" building, located on the south east corner of the Altis, or Sacred Precinct of Zeus. This building's function is unknown, though it may have been a shrine to Hestia. It was leveled to make way for the building of Nero's house. To the north of the South-East building is the Echo Colonnade, otherwise called the Stoa Poikile after the paintings which decorated it. It was given the title of Echo due to its acoustics, which supposedly could carry an echo seven times. In front of the colonnade is a dedication to Ptolemy II, which once consisted of two Ionic columns with gold plated statues of Ptolemy and his queen.
