View looking west at the interior of the Hellenistic theater at Priene. In the foreground is the orchestra. Surrounding it is a row of benches and chairs for the elite of the city along with a sacrificial altar
Note the cavea that rises up behind the orchestra area. The theater's shape is slightly larger than a semi-circle—typical of early Hellenistic theaters.
