Description

Rebuilt in the twentieth-century by the American School of Classical Studies, this photograph depicts the Stoa of Attalos. A stoa was a portico-ed building used for various legal, professional, and personal functions, and this particular stoa was given to the Athenians circa 150 BCE as a gift from the king of Pergamon, Attalos II Philadelphus, in recognition of the education he received while studying in Athens. It was later destroyed in 267 CE when German invaders began raid the Greek mainland.
