Title:   Agora Excavations 1995 Preliminary Report
Author:   John McK. Camp II
Abstract:   Excavations continued in the areas of the Panathenaic Way, west of the Stoa Poikile, and in and around the Classical commercial building north of the Stoa Poikile.
In the Panathenaic way the exploration of the Classical levels continued. It became clear that the composition of the road fills changed drastically over time. In the second half of the 5th century B.C. the road surfaces were carefully prepared, perhaps to then serve as a race track.
The exploration of the levels overlying the Classical commercial building continued and more of the walls of the third room from the south were found along with a cement lined basin. Many fragments of terracotta figurines were found which indicate that such were sold and produced in the area.
West of Stoa Poikile, the clearing of a late Archaic well was completed. It produced pottery for domestic use, dating to 510-480 B.C.
