Mars' Hill (märz hĭll), or Areopagus (ăr'e-ŏp'a-gŭs or â're-ŏp'a-gŭs). Acts 17:19; Acts 17:34. This was a rocky height in Athens, opposite the western end of the Acropolis. From this spot Paul delivered his address to the men of Athens. Acts 17:22-31. He also "disputed" in the "market," or agora, "daily," 17:17, which was south of the Areopagus, in the valley lying between this hill and those of the Acropolis, the Pnyx, and the Museum.
