View looking south down on a portion of the cavea [semi–circular seating area] of the partially excavated theater with the orchestra area in the right [west] side of the image. The excavator estimates that the theater could hold about 5,000 persons seated on some 26 rows of seats.

The theater was built during the Hellenistic period and expanded by the Romans. It was in existence when Paul and Barnabas visited the city.
