About Aspendos Roman Theatre

Still able to seat up to 15,000 people this Roman amphitheatre was once part of the city of Aspendos, which was founded by Ancient Greeks from Argos and was first written about by the Hittites in 800 BC.

Under the Romans, the city grew even more prosperous and Aspendos Roman Theatre was built there during the mid-second century AD.
