View of the interior of the podium of the so-called "Capitolium" at Alexandria Troas.  Note the now-blocked doorway, the well-preserved walls, the hewn stones at the bases of the arches, and actually the Roman bricks that were used in the construction of the arches.

This structure has not yet been excavated but measures 100 x 100 ft. [30 x 30m.].   It is located northeast of the theater and dates to the Roman Period.

In the descriptive brochure from Troas it is called the Capitolium?  A Capitolium is a place—in Roman provinces—where Jupiter, Juno and Minerva (the Capitoline gods of Rome) were honored.
