'Devet Agorasi'

English: Probably in the 15th century B.C., an enclosure was set up in the saddle between the two city mountains; at the beginning of the 1"century A.D. it covered an area of 160 x 58 m. The area was surrounded by porticoes on three sides. The location was bordered at the west by an ashlar wall, against which numerous individual monuments were erected. At the latest since the time of Emperor Augustus (27 B.C. - A.D. 14), the `State Agora' with its surrounding buildings constituted the political centre of the city.
Turkish: Şehrin her iki yanındaki dağların arasındaki çukur alanda olasılıkla İ.Ö. 1.
yüzyılda yapılan meydan, I.S. 1. yüzyılın başında 160 x 58 m'|ık bir alanı kapsamaktaydı. Meydanın uç yanı sütunlu galerilerle çevrilmiştir. Batı sınırını, kesme bloklardan yapılmış ve pek çok anıtın dayandığı bir duvar oluşturur. En geç imparator Augustus (İ.Ö. 27 - İ.S. 14) Dönemi'nden itibaren 'Devlet Agorası', etrafındaki diğer yapılarla beraber şehrin politik merkezi haline gelmiştir.
