As in the ancient Agora, the Roman market here was a center for the city's residents at the time, where a large part of the commercial and social life of the city took place.
The Roman Agora was smaller than the ancient Greek Agora. It was built in 11 BC, in the style of Dori. These were Julius Caesar and other Roman leaders who ruled Athens and built not only their agora but also a number of buildings and monuments in the ancient Agora and the Acropolis.
The market of the Agora was allocated by the Romans a large open area, surrounded by a row of columns. On its eastern side was a boulevard of shops with a fountain on its southern side. The Roman Agora had access to public services.
Unfortunately, it is not possible today to see much of the Roman Agora in Athens, since most of the buildings built there were completely or mostly destroyed. In some cases, they were destroyed in order to build magnificent structures and temples in later periods.
The entrance is free on the first Sunday of each month.
