Amathus ruins at Limassol 1

In antiquity, a city’s agora was the traditional hub for commercial and political activities. In Amathous, the agora was a large rectangular stone - paved area, flanked by porticoes on three sides and a monumental square fountain in the centre. The small rooms at the back of the west portico were used as shops. Along the open, fourth side on the south ran the main road of the lower city. On the other side were the Hellenistic baths. Roman baths were found on the east of the east portico. The many buildings surrounding the agora played an important role in the public life of the city.
