Theater Gymnasium 

Theatre Gymnasium

This was built during Roman times, perhaps at the beginning of the 2nd century AD, however only the palaestra has been uncovered. The other sections have been partially excavated, revealing a lovely plan. On the north of the 30 by 70 m palaestra, instead of a stoa there are steps that were used as a sitting area. This made the area both a small "stadium" as well as an activity area for sports.
