Stoa of Attalos, Athens Overview

The Stoa of Attalos is an impressive archaeological site on the east side of the Agora that houses the Museum of the Ancient Agora. The museum preserves some of the finest excavations from the Ancient Agora – from sculptures, coins, and inscriptions that date back to the 5th century BC to the pottery of the Byzantine period and the Turkish conquest.

Constructed on the site of an ancient building in Athens, today it displays various exhibits that are linked to Athenian democracy. What once used to be an ancient commercial centre, today is an architectural wonder that pieces together a collection that dates from the Neolithic times till the 6th century AD. You can also find marble statues, parts of columns, coins, ceramic vases, items of daily use, reliefs, and weapons among other artefacts. The highlights are the giant body state of the god Apollo, the water clock (clepsydra) used to measure time in the courthouses and the tomb of a young girl from the Geometric times.
