Local nameΠνύκα
LocationAthens, Greece

The Pnyx is a hill in central Athens, the capital of Greece. Beginning as early as 507 BC, the Athenians gathered on the Pnyx to host their popular assemblies, thus making the hill one of the earliest and most important sites in the creation of democracy.

The Pnyx is located less than 1 kilometre west of the Acropolis and 1.6 kilometres south-west of the Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens.
