|This article is about the agora in Cyrene. For other uses, see Agora.|
In 47 BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa came to Cyrene in search of the Roman proconsul and leader of the Order of the Ancients, Flavius Metellus. On the way there, he met a Greek woman named Praxilla. After helping her, she advised Bayek to meet with a man named Diocles in the Agora to discuss Flavius. On reaching the city and the Agora, Diocles was arguing with a citizen about the corrupt magistrate of Cyrene, Leander. Bayek approached Diocles and explained his reasons for coming. Diocles instructed Bayek that Flavius ruled from the city Roman Akropolis, which was surrounded by Roman soldiers. As Bayek made his way through the Agora, he encountered several orators spewing the Order of the Ancients' doctrine, which he spurned.
Behind the scenes
The lion statue in the agora concept art is based on the lion statue from the sanctuary of Apollo in Cyrene. The statue, however, doesn't appear in game.
