It is an attractive building but leaves me with mixed feelings about a reproduction in the midst of authentic ancient ruins/5().The Atalos Stoa on the east side of the Ancient Agora of Athens was a present from the king of Pergamos Atalos II (2nd century BC) to the city of Athens, as stated in an inscription on the column of the lower colonnade, which is fragmentarily preserved: “King Attalos And Queen Apollonia “.The building was about meters long, had a second floor with a second row of columns inside and The Stoa of Attalos has been restored on multiple occasions by American University of Classical Studies at Athens to learn more about the building and culture of the Greeks.
