The Stoa of Attalos, as determined using the satillite imagery in Google Earth compared to the plan of the Athenian Agora on page 349, figure 10.16 in Pedley, 5th ed. (2012). The rule of King Attalos II of Pergamon, who built the Stoa, is referenced as being from 159-138 BCE on the same page in Pedley. The estimated date of original construction is therefore c. 150 BCE, in the Hellenistic Period. The monument was destroyed in 267 CE.
