The Stoa of Attalos, a two-floor building, was donated by the King of Pergamon Attalos II (159-138 BC) to the city of Athens. It is thought to have been a kind of ancient commercial centre with 21 shops on each floor. The Stoa is part of the archaeological area of the ancient Agora, which is located on the foothills of the Acropolis, near metro stop “Theseion.” The Stoa holds a Museum that displays everyday objects, which were unearthed in excavations in the ancient Agora. Visitors may get an idea of everyday life ancient Athens.
