A monument to the Battle of Marathon. Eugene Vanderpool describes the location of the monument as lying in the northeastern part of the plain of Marathon. A Christian chapel known as the Panagia Mesosporitissa marks the vicinity of this monument. In the area of the chapel are a well that reuses ancient marble and the ruins of a medieval tower that was built from re-used ancient blocks, including a massive Ionic column capital and two large column drums.
