Royal Stoa - Ancient Thera
(Royal Stoa, Vasilki Stoa, Royal Arcade)

The Royal Stoa, Vasilki Stoa, or Royal Arcade. One of the most impressive monuments of Ancient Thera, along with the ancient theater. This was an imposing elongated building with a Doric colonnade on its long axis. It dominated the southern part of the Agora and housed the official political and administrative offices of the city. Its construction dates to the early 3rd century BC, but extensive repairs were made in the 2nd century AD, as evidenced by two built-in stone inscriptions across from the entrance.
