Nymphaeum of Athens
The nymphaeum was a large, semicircular and elaborate fountain facing north towards the Panathenaic Way.
Construction began under Hadrian and was completed around 140 CE under Antonius Pius. It was built over the remains of the Mint which had previously occupied this site.
The walls of the fountain had niches decorated with statues of the Antonine imperial family and its lower part was formed by basins, pools and springs fed by the city’s Hadrianic aqueduct
