Greek (Classical) Agora

Greek (Classical) Agora

The Greek agora of Athens was located northwest of the acropolis and has been extensively investigated.

We are just beginning to post images of the ancient agora in Athens.  Additional commentary and images will be forthcoming.

This is the “market place” (Greek agora) mentioned in Acts 17:17 where the apostle Paul would “reason” with those present on a daily basis.  The “Areopagus” is located at the southern end of the agora.
