Lysicrates' Monument

Interesting
Erected in 334 BC, the Monument of Lysicrates is the only surviving example of the choragic monuments that punctuated the way between the Theatre of Dionysus and the Agora. To the right, the name of the street, "Tripodon", alludes to the bronze tripods given to the winners of the Dionysia contests, which they then exhibited all along the road. A sculpted frieze at the top is thought to depict the dramatic competition won by Lysicrates.
