Basileios Stoa, basiliké stoà, or Royal Stoa, was constructed in the 6th century BC. Its location is in the northwest corner (known as "the Herms" because of the great number of Herms set up there) of the Athenian Agora. The Royal Stoa was the headquarters of King Archon and of the Areios Pagos council (in charge of religious affairs and crime). A statue of Themis (Justice) stands in front of the building. Copies of the city laws were kept in this Stoa.

The front of the building was where Socrates met Euthyphro and had the conversation, which Plato recreated in his Euthyphro. It was also where Socrates was formally charged with impiety by Meletus.
