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: The facade of the stadium was decorated with a row of arched passages on both sides of the west main entrance. These are some of the arches to its left. (Some archeologists think that the east entrance on the opposite side of the stadium was identical, but has collapsed).
