Plaka, monument of Lysicrates

On Lysicrates square in Plaka, close to the Acropolis metro station on Amalias Avenue, you will find the choragic (choragus = the chorus leader) monument of Lysicrates, built in 334 BC in the form of a small circular temple. It was erected to commemorate the greater Dionysos series of plays and was one of many that used to line the Street of Tripods now called Tripodon Street.
