This useful guide to the archaeological remains viewable in the civic and commercial center of ancient Athens is an essential companion to the interested visitor, or to students of the topography of the classical city. A foldout map provides an overview of the site, keyed to descriptions and plans of every monument still visible: from the boundary stones to the "Great Drain." The fifth edition retains many of the parts that made the earlier editions (1954, 1962, 1976, 1990) so popular, but it also takes full account of both new discoveries and recent scholarship. It is intended for visitors actually touring the site, and is arranged topographically, monument by monument. It also contains color illustrations. To increase portability, this book does not contain a guide to the Agora Museum in the Stoa of Attalos.
