On the eastern side of the Philopappos hill there are two caves carved into the rock, known as the prison of Socrates. In reality there are the remains of a residency of the 4th century BC which were erroneously identified with the place that Socrates, who was sentenced to death, was held and talked with his friend Crito just before his execution. During the Second World War the caves have been covered with a protective concrete wall in order to be used as a crypt of antiquities of the National Archaeological Museum.
