Long Description:
It appears that the Romans used it for gladiatorial contests. Stone slabs set around the edge suggest protection for spectators from animals. Some of the seats have names carved into them, presumably pre-booked by Roman families.
The theatre is still used today, mainly for musical performances as well as the one-off play.
