Akropolis

The Propylaia and the monument of Euemenes II

The north wing of the Propylaia from the stepped approach. To the left is the monument of the Attalid king Euemenes II, dating to the early second century BC. This monument was built in Hymettian marble and supported a chariot. It was reused in the Augustan period to celebrate Marcus Agrippa, the son-in-law of the emperor, who visited the city in 15 BC.
