View of a portion of the lower portion of the agora (the Cryptoporticus). Note the remnant of frescos on the wall to the right!

In January 2003 the Turks had begun large-scale excavations of the agora and were opening large portions of the northeastern Cryptoporticus.  These major excavations and reconstructions are ongoing.

A similar two-story agora has also been found in the excavations at Thessaloniki (Greece).
