Stoa of Attalos, Athens

4.5
Stoa of Attalos represents an ancient covered walkway featuring the colonnades typical of the Hellenistic age. Originally built between 159 BCE and 138 BCE by Greek ruler King Attalos II, the site was reconstructed in the 1950s following excavation. Classically Greek in appearance and feel, the marble and limestone stoa stands 115 by 20 m (377 by 65 ft). Doric columns make up the exterior, while Ionic ones line the interior. Each of the two stories has 21 rooms. Today the rooms house the Museum of Ancient Angora, where you can see exhibitions dedicated to the structure's original ruler and artifacts from the 5th and 7th centuries BCE. Among them is a bronze statue of a goddess, likely Aphrodite, and several sculptures, coins, and clay pottery pieces.
