Market of the Competaliasts

The Market (Agora) of the Competaliasts is located behind the island’s ancient commercial port, on our right as we enter the archaeological site via its main entrance. One of the markets of the ancient city, with two temples dedicated to Mercury (Hermes), it was named after the Competaliasts, a union of freed men and slaves. Its main square, which is paved in granite, is distinctive. The buildings in the southeastern part of the square were shops, and there were also many open-air commercial activities (like today's farmer’s markets). Among other things, the grain trade stood out, while the slave bazaar mentioned by the geographer Strabo was also famous.
