This building remains in use from the late 5th to the 2nd centuries BC, and appears in the representations for the Classical and Hellenistic periods. Although the structure was largely ruined due to building activities in the Roman and Byzantine periods, its design is rather easily represented: it is a quadrilateral, almost square enclosure, surrounding three roofed rooms to the south and a spacious courtyard. The entrance is tentatively placed to the west. In the maquette of the Agora of c.400 BC [e.g. Αρχαία Αγορά της Αθήνας – Άρειος Πάγος. Σύντομο Ιστορικό και Περιήγηση, Έκδοση Ένωσης Φίλων Ακροπόλεως (Αθήνα 2004), p. 6, fig. 7], the northwest room is taller and has its own independent gabled roof, the two southwest rooms have a common gabled roof and are shorter, while a stoa is depicted in the north section of the enclosure; this is purely speculative, for no trace of it has been unearthed [Mc Camp II. J. – Kroll, J.H., ‘The Agora Mint and Athenian Bronze Coinage’, Hesperia 70 (2001), pp. 127-162].
