Progress of Works
Theater News

The theatre is dated to the 2nd century BCE by inscriptions and the seating area was likely composed of wooden seats on stone supports. Five marble prohedria were discovered placed around the orchestra. Two parodoi led off from the orchestra between the seating area of the cavea and the stage building. The Doric order proscaenium of the stage structure is well preserved. The theater would have held approximately three hundred spectators.
