The Lysikrates Monument in Athens. The Choragic Monument of Lysicrates was built in 335 to 334 B.C. to commemorate the award of first prize to one of the performances he had sponsored. It stands alongside an ancient street that once led to the Theater of Dionysus and was lined with choragic monuments. (A choregos was a sponsor who paid for and supervised the training of dramatic dance choruses.) The Lysikrates Monument is the only one still standing in part because it was incorporated within the walls of a Capuchin monastery in 1658.
