Lyceum [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy] (1725 words)
In sum, the ancient literary, epigraphic, and archaeological evidence indicates that the area known as the "Lyceum" probably covered a large area to the East of the ancient city wall, but was not immediately adjacent to the wall.
It may have begun just to the West of the modern Amalias Blvd. and continued East through the modern National Gardens with the Olympieion and Ilissos river forming its southern boundaries; it may have extended northward as far as modern Kolonaki plateia.
If further excavation at the site near Rigillis St. confirms the excavator's assertions that the ancient buildings there were located in the Lyceum, then we may at least have an indication of the eastern extent of the gymnasium area.
