This useful guide to the archaeological remains viewable in the civic and commercial center of ancient Athens is an essential companion to the interested visitor, or to students of the topography of the classical city. A foldout map provides an overview of the site, keyed to descriptions and plans of every monument still visible: from the boundary stones to the “great drain.” A section on the artifacts visible in the museum concludes the guide. (Note: Since the 2004 Olympics, the museum guide is now slightly out-of-date, but the same objects are currently visible with different inventory numbers.)
