I am told they have identified some more stones that belong here that are categorized and stored around the site. It was something to walk thru history.

Walking in Ancient Agora of Athens, it is possible to see picturesque ruins of Old and New Bouleterion. They can be found right beneath the hill where the temple of Hefaistos is standing. Bouleterion was a building for daily meetings of Athenian Senate, Old one was built appr. 500 BC and was a large rectangular building with rows of stone seats. New Bouleterion was built ca 100 years later and was little smaller, with no stone seats, maybe they had a wooden furniture, and the old building became an archive.
There are just a sparse remains of both buildings, but anyway it is possible to imagine the whole picture using your imagination, enjoying a quiet and relaxing walk on the Ancient Agora..

If you approach formally, it is the second most important attraction of Athens - in terms of the features of this ancient policy. First - the Pnyx, where was holding people's Assembly, to which in ancient Athens belonged  the decisive role in rule. Bule is the council that prepared the agenda and draft decisions for this people's Assembly. These two institutions of power in Athens, which gave democracy to the world. The Acropolis with the Parthenon, Byzantine churches and everything else, without which it is difficult to imagine the appearance of Athens, still cannot representsuch  its contribution to the history of  human civilization,that gave these two unremarkable today sites.

Nice to walk here in this part of Agora, many ruins, nice path and great views; it was an administrative and trade center of Athens and are today sacred ruins, it seems the past never dead.

This was the council , senate or assembly building which apparently dated back to 500BC. It had basic bench seating for around 500 representatives. It was in the Athenian Agora and payout can see the temple of Hefeastus in the background

Historic old ruins. While walking around these ruins, it is quite cool to see and think of the old history.
