Piraeus, the port city of Athens became a Mediterranean naval powerhouse during the 5th Century BCE and remained a major commercial center until its destruction by the Romans. Traces of the city's prosperity are exhibited at the archaeological museum near the Zea Harbor. The museum's collection contains statues, grave monuments, reliefs and pottery, mainly from the 5th and 4th Century BCE. Right next to the museum are the ruins of an ancient theater.
