Description

The 130-meter colonnade known as the Stoa of Hermes and Hercules, built at an uncertain date and connecting the agora and the gymnasium at Cyrene. It consisted of a row of columns that ran down the street, as in the Stoa of Attalus in Athens, with windows flanked by the herms opening onto the street (MacKendrick, 123).
