XV - Amphitheatre

1. The Hellenistic amphitheater located in the ancient city has been rebuilt within the confines of the Archaeological Revival of Babylon Project. However, it has not been rebuilt strictly according to the original plans. It has been enlarged with supplementary rooms (beyond the walls of the ancient theater). It has been enlarged also with the rooms in the mid part of the auditorium, the rooms that did not exist during the Hellenist times. Furthermore, the patio that is adjacent to the theater has been rebuilt according to a slightly different plan.
As far as the Amphitheater is concerned there are no disturbances.
