Named after a mythical trial of the god Ares, the Areopagus is a rocky outcropping in Athens located to the northwest of the acropolis. The hill was used as a meeting place for the Council of the Areopagus which functioned as a council of elders for the city of Athens. The Areopagus is also traditionally identified as the setting for Paul's sermon to Athens.
