The Roman Agora is the first building that one encounters nowadays upon entering the archaeological site of the sanctuary of Apollo in Delphi.

Description

The first building remains that the visitor sees upon entering the precinct of the sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi is a large rectangular paved square, which used to be surrounded by Ionic porticos on its three sides, whereas along the southern side was formed a kind of corridor. The square was built in the Roman period, but the remains visible at present along the north and northwestern sides date to the Late Antique period. On the open-air space an open market was probably established, where the visitors would buy ex votos and other necessary cultic objects. In Late Antiquity workships of artisans were also created within the agora.
