William Sachtleben exploring the southern part of the ruins of the Stoa of Attalos. With one leg raised on a block of stone, he is reading or writing in a book propped on his leg. A house is visible beyond the ruins.
The center of the Agora was open until a theater was built there, called the Odeion of Agrippa. It was destroyed by fire in A.D. 267 and in about A.D. 400 the Stoa of the Giants (also known at the Palace of the Giants or the Gymnasium) was built using the colossal Giant and Triton statues from the debris of the Odeion of Agrippa on its north side.
