Olynthos was an ancient city of irregular plan.  A spacious new plan was laid out in 432BC with broad avenues intersected at right angles.  The blocks were 120 x 300 feet and each contained ten houses: five houses were on a side, with a narrow alley between them.  The houses were all of the same type: the main rooms facing south across a courtyard.
