View of the entrance to the Senate House—usually called a Bouleuterion but also called a Gerontikon (Council of Elders) at Nysa.   In the foreground is part of the porch of the Bouleterion.

The structure is almost square, with a semi-circular interior seating area.  It had a capacity of about 700 people.  This version of the Bouleuterion was constructed in the second century AD.  In the front was a two-story scaenae frons.
