Stoa of Attalos Research Center

All material excavated from the site is stored in the Stoa, together with the complete archaeological record: day-by-day notes of the excavators, conservation procedures, photographs, plans and drawings, and completed publications. This makes the Agora a unique resource in Mediterranean archaeology, in that every object and its complete archaeological record are housed together and can be studied side by side.

The Agora Excavations offices are located within the ancient Agora archaeological site, on the upper floor of the Stoa of Attalos. Scholars wishing to study material from the excavations may contact the Secretary, Jan Jordan. The offices in the Stoa of Attalos are open Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 2.30 pm. The offices can be reached by telephone (30-210-3310963), by fax (30-210-3310964), by email ( .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)), or by regular post at the following address: Athenian Agora Excavations, American School of Classical Studies, 54 Souidias Street, GR-106 76 Athens, Greece.
