Diazoma ("Belt Walkway")

Diazoma ("Belt  Walkway")

View looking at the wide diazoma of the theater.  The woman in the image is walking on the "belt."  Note the seating below and to the right of the diazoma and that above and to the left of it.  Note also the very narrow staircases that lead up to the upper seating area - most of the upper audience must have entered from above rather than from these staircases.  Note also the "cunie" both above and below the diazoma.
