This article, the twelfth and last of a series presented in this journal, offers an overview of the officially commissioned sculptures and paintings in the Athenian Agora from Kleisthenes through Augustus (ca. 510 B.C. to A.D. 14). It also offers new dates and interpretations for some of them, synthesizing the results of work done in the Agora from 2007 to 2019 with the evidence of the written sources. Three appendices present a gazetteer of the sculptures and paintings on and in the Agora’s public buildings, its state-sponsored honorific portraits, and the freestanding statues of the gods there.
