At the southeast base of the Acropolis is the ancient first theater in the world dedicated to Dionysus. It was first built of wood in the 6C BC but was rebuilt in stone in the 4C BC to hold 17,000 attendees. It was further reconstructed in Roman times to be be used mainly for animal fights and aquatic performances. The first row of seats contained thrones.
