The southeast retaining wall of the theater, against which the outer radian seats of the auditorium and the upper walkway leaned. The debris on the foreground are what is left of the collapsed stage building (destroyed by lightning at the beginning of the 20th century). The theater is dated from the 2nd century AD (Roman era) and was restored a century later. It is about 80 m wide and could hold some 9500 people.
