From the gymnasium a road leads to the stadium and the theatre at its end. A combinatio0n of these two is unique. Building started around 160 and proceeded into the middle of the third century AD. Again M. Apuleius Eurykles seems to have had a hand in some of the building works.
On the picture: Standing on top of the west entrance to the stadium, and looking at its northern half. On the left lies the theater. The (largely collapsed) stage building of the theater was also the northern wall of the stadium.
The stadium is 213½ m long, and up to 83 m wide (it is wider in its middle than at the northern and southern ends). It had a capacity of 13500 people.
The theater is some 100 m wide and could hold 20000 people.
