Description

According to Apollodoros, the epithet Pandemos (all the people) associated with this shrine of Aphrodite comes from its location on the Old Agora of Athens where the assemblies took place before the creation of the Agora of the Kerameikos at the beginning of the 6th century BC.

The shrine of Aphrodite Pandemos was probably located at the foot of the southwest bastion near the monumental ramp giving access to the Akropolis.

The architrave of the temple has been found. It measures 3.17 m wide.
