The Roman Theatre was built in the beginning of the 2nd century BC. You can see 19 lines of the central seats of the cavea. The orchestra had got a semi-circular shape and it was decorated with different kinds of marble.
One of the most interesting ruins is the pulpitum and the frons scaenae which was decorated and suddivided in two floors.
