Ancient Agora

After a series of repairs and remodeling, it reached its final rectangular form in the 2nd century BC. Extensive building activity occurred after the serious damage made by the Persians in 480/79 BC, by the Romans in 89 BC and by the Herulae in 267 AD while, after the Slavic invasion in 580 AD, It was gradually abandoned. From the Byzantine period until after 1834, when Athens became the capital of the independent Greek state, the Agora was again developed as a residential area.
