VI. Spartan Monuments of the Persian Wars in General
According to both Pausanias and Vitruvius a stoa was built in the Agora in Sparta from spoils of the Persian wars which was called the Persian Stoa. Vitruvius, Pausanias, and Dio Chrysostom (47.17) refer to it by this name. The spoils of the battle of Plataea were quite rich and were distributed among the allies (Hdt. 9.80,81). Sparta receiving a large part, as she was the leader of the force. It is likey that the stoa was built from the sale of this booty but the building was probably meant to commemorate the Persian Wars in general rather than specifically the battle of Plataea.
