"Gate of Athena Archegetis" Athens Ancient and Roman Agora Tip by Christianne

  Gate of Athena Archegetis
by Christianne

Favorite thing: The Gate of Athena Archegetis is situated in the west part of the Roman Agora.
It was built between 19 and 11B.C.
The entrance of the monument has a row of four Doric
columns and a pedestal made of marble.
It was constructed with donations of Julius Caesar and Augustus. I was dedicated to the partoness of the city Athena Archegetis.
The entrance to east part of the Agora has a row of Ionic columns.
