The Khufu pyramid base width expressed in ancient feet:

w = 774.98 Delphi feet
= 718.84 Olympia feet
= 760.30 Epidaurus feet
= 722.18 Priene feet
= 776.51 Nemea feet
= 702.33 Common Hellenic feet
= 696.43 Attican feet
= 745.99 photon feet = 745.99 Parthenon feet = 745.99 Herodotus feet
= 747.29 Panathenean feet
= 733.33 Sneferu feet
= 731.31 Lycurgus feet

Diodorus refers to 7 plethra(singular: plethron). This means he is referring to an approximation using the Common Hellenic foot which was the latest of the units used.

As for the Zeus Temple at Olympia, according to the Wikipedia stylobate dimensions:

length = 64.12 m = 200.08 Olympia feet
diagonal = 217.93 Olympia feet

Khufu pyramid base perimeter ~ 3,100 Delphi feet ~ 2,984 photon feet
