The Agora of Aphrodisias was the large public or market area in the northern part of the portico between the Temple of Aphrodite and the Acropolis. It is a structure built mostly for musical events. Eventually it was also serving the purpose of holding public speech and literature competitions as well.
The Agora had two long Ionic porticoes. The northern portico is still unexplored, but seems to be built earlier than the southern one. The southern portico is the one called the Portico of Tiberius.
