The Stoa of Attalos, Museum of Ancient Agora, is one of the most impressive estoas of Ancient Greece, located in the ancient Agora of Athens. It was built by King Attalus II of Pergamum (r. 160-138 BC), and it was named. Typical structure of the Hellenistic era, this estoa was one of the largest buildings of ancient Athens. It measures 115 x 20 m and is made of Pentelic marble and limestone. His mixed style makes effective use of the various Greek orders. The Doric order was used for the outer colonnade and the Ionic order to the internal speakers. The Stoa of Attalos was a gift to the city of Athens in gratitude for the education received there by pergamenhos, as indicated by an inscription on the facade. The building was very used until its destruction by the Heruli in 267 A.D. .. In the 1950s it was completely and faithfully restored and transformed into the Museum of the Ancient Agora, with funds provided by the Rockefeller family.
