The Royal Stoa (Stoa Basileios)

Viewing looking east with the projecting north wing of the stoa on the left. The road that ran along the east side of the buildings of the democracy is in the middle of the picture, at right angles to the Metro tracks. In the distance is a well and the 'Crossroads Enclosure'. The Panathenaic Way lay just off the picture to the left.

The law of Athens was display in the Stoa. The lithos where the oath was taken by the archons is at the bottom of the picture.
