Agora of Athens, Greece


In the Agora or Market Place, Athens, Ancient Greece

An agora was more than a marketplace to the Ancient Greeks. It was a place for open assemblies. Greek citizens would meet in the agora to hear statements from their rulers. The term agora is the origin of the term agoraphobia, which refers to a fear of public situations.
