Agora Portico

Agora Portico

View looking north at the remains of the large western portico of the agora.  In the left side of the image note the arches of the underground (lower portion) of the agora. For a view of the area underneath these arches (the Cryptoporticus) Click Here.

The re–erected columns with the Corinthian capitals outline the upper agora.

Note the hill visible through the columns of the agora. This is the ancient citadel, Mt. Pagus (the modern Kadifekale).
