Pnyx

Caption:
The Pnyx. The speaker's platform (Bema) and rock-cut scarp of Pnyx III are at the right side of the photo. The word "Pnyx" means "tightly packed" or "crowded", so we have to imagine several thousand Athenian male (only) citizens crowded together to listen, debate, and vote. The chairs are modern. View from the west.
