Located next to the Roman Theatre, the Odeon is a smaller amphitheatre. It was constructed in the 2nd century AD, with a seating capacity of only 500 people, and held mainly musical performances. It is said that the original structure was covered with a wooden ceiling to shield spectators from the sun. The structure was heavily restored in recent years and continues to hold small performances.
