The Bouleuterion is an important government building. The Council of Five Hundred meets here. It is the Council's job to prepare all the subjects that need to be discussed at the assembly. They also make sure that the decisions made by the assembly are carried out.

The members of the Council are chosen by a lottery. The Council members change every year. This stops any one person becoming too powerful.
