Ancient and Roman Agoras of Athens The Ancient Agora Agora means marketplace and the scattered piles of rocks and foundational walls are what is left of the stalls, buildings and shrines that were the center of life in ancient Athens where Socrates, Pericles, Plato and the rest of those guys once walked, talked and bought fistikia and pasetempo.

The Agora, the marketplace and civic center, was one of the most important parts of an ancient city of Athens. In addition to being a place where people gathered to buy and sell all kinds of commodities, it was also a place where two agoras in ancient Athens book assembled to discuss all kinds of topics: business, politics, current events, or the nature of the universe and the divine.

A distinction was maintained between commercial and ceremonial agoras in Thessaly and elsewhere (Aristotle, Politics, vii, II, 2). In the highly developed agora, like that of Athens, each trade or profession had its own quarter.

Many cities had officials called agoranomoi to control the area. Just about every ancient and modern city includes a place for an agora, and the Agora of Athens, being located at the heart of the city, remained in use either as an assembly, as a commercial, or as a residential area for about years.

The Ancient Agora of Athens is the best-known example of an ancient Greek agora, located to the northwest of the Acropolis and bounded on the south by the hill of the Areopagus and on the west by the hill known as the Agoraios Kolonos, also called Market on: Greece.

The museum’s collection contains various items found during the excavations of the Ancient Agora, like ceramics, jewels, weaponry and coins. From these twin functions of the agora as a political and a commercial space came the two Greek verbs ἀγοράζω, agorázō, "I shop", and ἀγορεύω, agoreúō, "I speak in public".

The main landmark of Athens is the acropolis ( ft/ m high), which dominates the city and on which stand the remains of the Parthenon, the propylaea, and the Erechtheum.
