The Agora, or market place formed the political heart of ancient Athens from 600 BC. Democracy was practised in the Bouleuterion(Council)and the law courts and in open meetings. Socrates was executed in the state prison here in 399BC. The theatres, schools and stoas filled with shops also made this the centre of social and commercial life.
