The Pnyx

The Pnyx was the meeting place of the Athenian Assembly. This is where Athenian citizens would gather every ten days or so to vote on legislation. You can still see the curved retaining wall, with its massive trapezoidal blocks – the biggest ever quarried in Athens, which supported the open air auditorium. Also, still surviving is the rock-cut speaker’s platform in the middle of the stone ridge.
