Adrianou Street at Agora Square.
The Agora was a central location in ancient Greek city-states. The literal meaning of the word is "gathering place" or "assembly". The agora was the center of athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life of the city. The Ancient Agora of Athens was the best-known example. Agora Square takes its name because of its proximity to the location of both the original and the Roman Agora of ancient Athens.
