hippodromes (Greek sports buildings) (<sports buildings by form>, sports buildings, ... Built Environment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Oblong enclosures curved at one end and built for horse and chariot racing, usage is typically restricted to such structures in Greek cities of the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine eras; meaning overlaps with similar structures in ancient Rome itself, "circuses (Roman arenas)." For sports structures used for horse racing in more modern contexts, use "horse racetracks."

Gebruik 'paardenrenbanen' voor sportbouwwerken die worden gebruikt voor paardenraces in moderne context. 
Spanish ..... Cercamiento oblongo de la antigua Grecia, curvado en uno de sus extremos y construido para las carreras de carros y caballos.
