During the epoch when Delos was independent (314-166 BC), the rulers of the Hellenistic States competed by ostentatiously constructing brilliant buildings on the Sacred Island. Philip V, King of Macedonia (grandson of Antigonus Gonatas), built the stoa named for him around 210 BC. A few years later, another portico was added behind the Stoa of Philip V: the Western Stoa. Open to the waterfront and harbor, it was used for commercial purposes.
