This is a modern reconstruction of the stoa. The Stoa of Attalos is a two-story building, 116 m x 19.4 m (381 ft x 63 ft 8 in), with a Doric colonnade on the ground floor, and an Ionic upper colonnade incorporating a balustrade. All the façade is in marble. The inner ground floor colonnades are equal in height to the exterior to support the floor above, but at double spacing they are Ionic. The inner colonnade of the upper floor has columns of palm-leaf design developed in Pergamum. Keywords: Greece, Perifereia Protevousis (Greater Athens), Athens, Agora, outdoor spaces, Attalus II.
