From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (Roman theatre)

This Roman theater in Aspendos, Turkey is considered the best-preserved ancient theater in the world

The Aspendos Theater in Serik, Turkey, is the best preserved ancient theater in the world, which gives us a look at what life was like in 160 B.C. Constructed during the reign of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, this theater actually features inscriptions on its walls that tell us a little bit about the architect.

Zenon, a Greek architect who was born in Aspendos. The theater’s acoustics are spectacular, and it’s designed to fit between 7,300 and 7,600 people. Unlike many of the other theaters around the world, the theater of Aspendos underwent a 13th century reconstruction.
