Teatro Romano e Odeon

Teatro Romano e Odeon

~~In between via Timaeus and via Teatro Greco, you will find the Roman Theatre and the Odeon, both dating from the imperial Age (I II sec. AD). The theatre (102 m diameter) could accommodate 7000 spectators who took place in an auditorium divided into three sectors, which were accessed by wide annular corridors (ambulatory), the building had a front scene rich in precious marbles also coming from 'Anatolia. The adjacent Odeon, a small semi-circular building (43 m diameter) used for musical auditions, was instead able to hold 1300 spectators, and unlike the theatre had a wooden roof, which no longer exists. Both structures exhibit clear signs of housing re-use made from the beginning of the twentieth century.
