The Stoa of Attalos. Reconstructed by the American School of Classical Studies in the 50’s this ancient version of the shopping center anchors the Ancient Agora at the foot of the Acropolis. It now houses the museum of the Agora. The Acropolis is just visible above the roofline, with part of the Propylaea (grand entrance) rising above the walls.
Our word Stoic derives from a group of philosophers that met in one of Athens’ stoas.
