first agora was built in the 6th century B.C. in Hellenistic
style which is buried approximately 2m below the
present Agora today. The information
about this one was obtained from drillings. The
present one was also built during the
Hellenistic ages (approximately 1st century
B.C.) together with the square shaped temple.
The temple was demolished totally during the
following ages and never being built again.
The place mainly
consisted of a large open space (160m x 56m) on
the right hand side of the museum entrance. It

mountain side. This large space was surrounded
by the Varius Bath, the Basilica, the Odeion, the Prytaneion, Pollio Fountain,
Gaius Laecanius Fountain and the Domitian Temple.
