Full description for The Athenian Agora
This definitive guide to the archaeological remains in the civic and commercial center of ancient Athens is an essential companion to the interested visitor, as well as to students of the topography of the classical city. A large-scale map provides an overview of the site, keyed to descriptions and plans of every monument still visible - from the majestic Temple of Hephaistos to the utilitarian "Great Drain." The fifth edition retains many of the elements that made the earlier editions so popular, but it also takes full account of both new discoveries and recent scholarship. It is intended for visitors touring the site, and is arranged topographically, monument by monument. Also included are an overview of the historical development of the site and a history of the excavations.
