View of the western face of the reconstructed Stoa of Attalus. Following the ancient pattern the outer columns on the lower floor are of the Doric order, while those of the upper floor are Ionic.
The reconstructed Stoa of Attalus was dedicated in 1956 and the lower floor houses a wonderful museum, while the upper floor serves as the headquarters for the American School of Archaeology in Athens — the organization that has been excavating the agora since the 1930’s.
