"ampitheatre #2" Grand Theatre Tip by TomorrowsAngel

Grand Theatre, Ephesus: 41 reviews and 74 photos

  decoration on ground level
by TomorrowsAngel

The ampitheatre has three cavea, each 22 rows, to which access was obtained via flights of steps between the cavea. The skene is 18m. in height and the inner facade was ornamented with reliefs, columns, blind niches, windows and decorated with statues on three levels. The semicircular orchestra, surrounded by a channel, fronted a second skene supported on columns, 2.7m in height, which was approached by flights of steps. This section of the skene was used during the Roman period.
