The ancient Agora was in the ancient market place and meeting place of the capital of the island of Kos.
It was built in three phases between 366 BC. and the 4th or 5th century when ancient Agorá was destroyed by an earthquake. It is one of the largest systems of its kind and ranged from today's excavation site down to Decumana, the main road leading west to Asklepieion.
If you walk south from the excavation site of the Leforos Vironos, you will find another excavation site on the right behind the Maritina Hotel, which was only exemplary restored a few years ago. This area also belonged to the ancient Agorá. Only at this point can the dimensions of the system be measured.
