Bodrum Amphitheatre The Bodrum Amphitheatre, also known as the Theatre at Halicarnassus, is a Greco-Roman theatre located in the town of Bodrum in present-day Turkey. It was originally built in the 4th century BC and is attributed to King Mausolos. The theatre was enlarged by the Romans in the 2nd century AD and is considered to be one of the most well-preserved structures from ancient Halikarnassus. In contrast, the theater at Polis is a classical Greek theater that was built in the 3rd century BC. It is a prime example of ancient Greek architecture and has three main sections: the stage, half-oval orchestra seating, and audience seats. The cavea width is 86 meters, and the orchestra diameter is 18 meters, providing seating for up to 13,000 people. Some of the seats bear inscriptions of names, possibly those of individuals who contributed to its construction. This outdoor museum became a significant tourist attraction after excavation work began in 1973. During the high season, the Bodrum Amphitheatre is used for musical concerts and is a part of the September Festival. It can be found on the road to Gumbet and is in excellent condition, making it a must-visit destination for those interested in ancient history and architecture.
