Map and Legend of the area of Stenopos Kollytos, between Pnyx and the Acropolis.
Stenopos means a main through street leading to the Agora, while Kollytos was a demos of Attica belonging to the tribe of Aegeis, and forming one of the districts into which the city of Athens was divided. It was the home-demos of the philosopher Plato.
Under the framework of the Program of the Unification of the Archaeological Sites of Athens, archaeological areas which were previously inaccessible have been opened to the public. These include the group of four houses called the “philosophical schools”, the Eleusinion sanctuary at the east side of the Panathenaic Way on the north slope of the Acropolis, the archaeological area of the “Dörpfeld excavation”, which “Stenopos Kollytos” street traverses, at the east side of Apostolou Pavlou street.
