The Stoae, two corridors with columns, located to the south and north of the Agora, were constructed to protect people from rain and sun and served as meeting points for traders, merchants and the wealthy. The north Stoa had two storeys and was 111.52m long and 12.42m wide. Steps ran along the entire front of it. The interior columns of its hall, erected in the Doric Order, were unfluted, while the exterior columns along the front, however, were fluted. The upper storey was carried by strong wooden beams. Both Stoae were built around the middle of the 2nd century BC.
