    Description:

    Dougga reached the height of its territorial expansion under the Antonines and Severans (AD 138-235), when it covered more than 25 ha; its population seems to have been between 5000 and 10,000. The town profited a great deal from local benefactors; for example, P. Marcius Quadratus had the theatre built between AD 168 and 169. The theatre was built into the hillside at the top of the city slope and could seat over 3000 spectators. The theatre is still used for performances of classic theatre,…

    Description:

    The Temple of Zeus, in the middle of the Altis, was begun ca. 470 BCE and completed in 456 BCE. This Doric peripteral temple (27.68 x 64.12 m; 6 x 13 columns) was the work of the Elian architect Libon. The largest temple in the Peloponnese, it was considered the finest expression and the ‘canon’ of the Doric order. It was constructed of local shelly limestone covered with white stucco, with only the roof, sima and lion-head waterspouts of Parian marble. Later, the frequent local earth…

    Description:

    The wealthy benefactor Herodes Atticus undertook to build a third odeion at Athens, in memory of his wife, who had died in AD 161. The odeion of Herodes Atticus rests against the south slope of the Acropolis and takes the form of a typical Roman theatre of the eastern type. A large amount of wood-ash was found all over the cavea at the time of its excavation. This and the fact that there are windows in the upper part of the scaenae frons have been taken as evidence that it was roofed. It is, …
