View of the unexcavated semi–circular seating area (cavea) of the theater. The group in the upper left portion of the photo is standing on the opposite side of the cavea. From the position where the photo was taken, the cavea curves to the left, to the tree, and from there back slightly to the right – to where the group is standing. Actually, given its small size, it may in fact be an Odeon.
