View looking east at the northeast corner of the Roman Theater at Xanthos. On the lower left side of the image, the straight stone “wall” is the well–preserved stage. On the right, the curvature of the cavea with the seating and aisles of the theater is visibe.
The green semi–circular area in the center of the image is the orchestra area. The arched parados (entrance) leads into it. Note too the relatively high wall that outlines the orchestra. This was added when the theater was turned into an amphitheater so that it was fit to hold gladiatorial and animal fights.
