Plot on a Map
Athens.

Areiopagos · The ancient and originally aristocratic council of Athens; its membership comprised those who had completed a term as one of the nine archons. Its powers had been severely restricted by the democratic reforms of Ephialtes in the 460s BCE, which left it as little more than the main court for cases of homicide; in the fourth century however other powers were added, most notably apophasis.

Greek: Ἄρειος πάγος; Ἄρεος πάγος .
