Description

This photograph depicts the heart of ancient Athenian political, commercial, and public life: the Agora. The Agora not only housed all of the major structures needed for the democracy to run effectively, but consisted of a vast marketplace where goods would be brought into the city and sold to its citizens. In sum, the Agora constituted the heart of daily Athenian public life. In the distance, one can see the Hephaisteion, the Temple of Hephaestus, hovering just above the Agora.
