Roman Theater

Αρχαίο Θέατρο Μήλου, Μήλος, Ελλάδα

Listing Description

The ancient Roman Theater was originally built by the inhabitants of the ancient city of Klima, probably during the Hellenistic era (3rd century BC).
However, after the destruction of the city by the Athenians, during the Roman years, on top of the surviving bases of the classical building was built a larger one with Parian all-white marble and wonderful reliefs, which is estimated to hold about 7,000 spectators. This is the form of theater you will see today.
The theater preserves seven marble stands, six rows of seats, the concave, the orchestra, the floor of the stage, as well as many architecturally elaborate places. The excavations began in 1989, while the order for its first cleaning was given by Louis II, Otto’s father, at the urging of L. Ross, who together with Otto was the first to visit the ancient theater in modern times. years.
Built in a prominent position, on the hillside has a magnificent view of the port and very good acoustics. Thus, it is not infrequently available for theatrical performances and musical events, since in its current state it can accommodate up to 700 people.
