Teatro Antico Description
The ancient theatre (the teatro greco, or "Greek theatre") is built for the most part of brick, and is therefore probably of Roman date, though the plan and arrangement are in accordance with those of Greek, rather than Roman, theatres; whence it is supposed that the present structure was rebuilt upon the foundations of an older theatre of the Greek period. From the fragments of architectural decorations still extant we learn that it was of the Corinthian order, and richly ornamented.
