The present structures in New Smyrna's agora date from after 178 CE when an earthquake destroyed the earlier agora. This was not mainly a commercial agora, but rather functioned for stately matters. This lower level had many different functions. The entire agora is multiple levels so some parts were shops, some areas were aqueducts (as pictured here), and passageways to the street below.
