This stoa was built against a fourth century BCE seawall sometime in the Hellenistic era. The seawall shows evidence of later Roman repairs.

This stoa in Mytilene was built sometime during the fourth - third centuries BCE along one of the city’s defensive seawalls of similar age, which composed the stoa’s long north wall. The stoa lay partially uncovered for most of its history, only being fully excavated in 2000. New discoveries in 2018 have found additional pieces of the seawall surrounding the stoa site, with evidence of repair by Romans through the first century BCE. Further Roman activity at the site includes a small bathhouse built partially over the stoa foundation, suggesting the site had fallen out of use by the first century CE.
