Meet the Romans in Greece

The Roman Agora was built between 19-11 BCE. Unlike a classical Greek agora, which served as the central public space of a city-state, the Roman Agora was a proper marketplace. The building covered an area of more than 11,000 m² (118,403 ft²) with a central open space of 5700 m² (61,354 ft²) surrounded by 112 Ionic columns. A row of fifteen rooms, presumably shops, stood at the building’s far end.

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
