The Stoa of Eumenes ! Jan 02, 2012
The stoa of Eumenes This stoa was the largest construction on the southern slope of the Acropolis being 162 meter (150 yards) long. It ran to the west of the theatre of Dionysos and today, but not originally, reaches the Odeion of Herodes Atticus.
The stoa was constructed by Eumenes II (197-159 BC), a powerful king of Pergamum. In design it looked very much like the Stoa of Attalos that was built by another king of Pergamum. Like the Stoa of Attalus it was double wide and was two stories high. Above the retaining wall was a peripatos (walkway) that runs around the foot of the hill.
The stoa of Eumenes was built of stacked poros stone and hymettian and pergamene marble.
