The Great Theatre of Ephesus

The theatre was started under Lysimachus in the third century BC, so itís Greek, but it was remodelled during Claudius up to Trajanus ((so somewhere between 41 AD and 117 AD). It could hold 24000 spectators. In the distance the road to what once was the harbour, and the sea.

A notice indicates it was in use until the 7th century.
