Priene 2007 4341.jpg

I now start a small series of pictures of the Buleiterion. It was the building that housed the meetings of the city council. It was built around 200 BC, and held 500 people. Here you see a reconstruction.

Next to it there was the Prytaneion, dating to the Roman emperors time. It held the sacred fire, and was used to receive signitaries and important guests. It has the form of a courtyard house.
