Odeon of Herodus Atticus

The Odeon (theatre) was built in 161 AD by Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped amphitheater with a front wall and a wooden roof, and was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of about 5000 people. It is now used as an open-air theatre and music hall.
