Lysicrates' Monument

Interesting
Erected in 334 BC, the Monument of Lysicrates is the only surviving example of the choragic monuments that punctuated the road connecting the Theatre of Dionysus and the Agora. It went via "Tripodon" road, which alludes to the bronze tripods given to the winners of the Dionysia contests and later exhibited the length of the road. A sculpted frieze at the top is thought to depict the dramatic competition won by Lysicrates.
