[sc. It is to be found] at Athens [and functions] just like a theatre. They say that Pericles created it for musical displays; for because of this it was named Odeion, from an ode. A jurycourt is in it, that of the archon; and also barley used to be weighed out there.

The Odeion lay on the south-east slope of the Acropolis. See e.g. Plutarch, Life of Pericles 13.9 (with P.A. Stadter's commentary), and generally J.M. Hurwit, The Athenian Acropolis (Cambridge 1999) 216-217 and Appendix C, #19.
