The Ancient Agora


Your first outdoors landmark of Kos town is just 200m away, in the Limenas district just by the port. The Ancient Agora was the administrative and commercial center in antiquity and, unsurprisingly, has contributed many of the island’s most important archaeological finds. Dating to the 5th century BC, the Agora was much more than a marketplace, with excavations unearthing mosaics, temples and statues as well as the galleries and other commercial buildings servicing the neighboring ancient port. Amongst the most important remains are temples dedicated to Aphrodite and Hercules and a 5th-century AD Christian Basilica.
