Photographer's Note

The Stoa-of-Attalos portico, has a display of headless statue collection from ancient times found and excavated around the Agora on old Athena.
There is an entrance to a relatively small museum, with a fairly good number tools, pottery-work and weapons from as early as the Bronze-age, and thereafter to the times of the Greek Empire some 2500 years back.

*** As written to Beverly about the beheaded-statues, I can only assume it was done as an act of humiliation and degradation by the conqueror over the local culture of the region taken by him.
Did not find any explanation on the web, though made a serch upon posting those photos
