City Eleusinion

Lower Terrace of the City Eleusinion. This northern area may have been a storage complex consisting of four rooms opening onto a courtyard to the east (left). The complex was built sometime in the Roman era, but was cleaned out and reused in the early Byzantine period. (Agora 31, pp. 87-88). View from the north, looking south, just inside the Late Roman gateway in the Post-Herulian Wall. The wooden scaffolding visible just to the left of center is supporting an ancient terrace wall (4th century B.C.) that also functioned as the northen peribolos wall of the City Eleusinion proper. View from the north. (Compare Agora 31, plate 3). August 8, 2003.
