Library of Hadrian - Athens, Greece

The Library was built in AD 132-134 as a donation of the Roman Emperor Hadrian to the city of Athens at the site of the prosperous quarter of the late Hellenistic-Early Roman period.


It was a rectangular peristyle structure with an interior courtyard. It had only one entrance through a monumental propylon on its western side, with four Corinthian columns of Phrygian marble.
