Pritaneum

Immediately adjacent to the bouleuterion is the Pritaneum, where those responsible for the administration of the city worked, and were given board and lodging. It was also used as accommodation for other citizens and for ambassadors from foreign countries. It was here that the sacred flame of the city burned continually. It was the tradition for newly married couples to take a flame from here to their new homes, being careful not to let it blow out on the way.
