CARD INDEX: This is a site development feature and not yet complete.  If you want to discover whether there is an active index card for the place on the map you are interested in simply point to the name of the place.  If the link is active the cursor will change - left clicking will take you to a brief description, supported by a photograph wherever possible.  Start here with the Agora -the market hall, near the bottom centre of the map. From the market you will have to go to 'Home'. Whatever you do, don't be distracted from the home page where direct links to the main pages are based.
