The Stoa of the Athenians was built against the Polygonal Wall that supported the platform on which the Temple of Apollo was built. This structure was used to house the trophies won by the Athenians in their naval victories. The facade originally had seven columns, only four of them have survived. The roof was believed to be wooden. It was built between 510 and 470 BCE.
