"Agora" at Malia

Greek (ancient, in Latin characters)

geographic name




  • Modern (AD 1700-Present) (confident)


The "agora" was misnamed by initial excavators of this Minoan site, who mistook the theatral area to the northwest of the palace for the sort of marketplace that would become common many centuries later in Greece. The French team researching the site as of 2017 still refer to the area as the "agora" within quotes in publications and plans.
