The Hellenistic theatre of Dion

The theatre of Dion is located in the area occupied by the sanctuaries outside the town wall. It was constructed of large quantities of earth in the years of Philipp V; its seats are made of big Hellenistic bricks. The theatre displays a spacious orchestra and a coelon so designed as to accomodate a large number of people, since this theater belonged not to a local, but to an important, famous sanctuary.
