From the gymnasium a road leads to the stadium and the theatre at its end. A combination 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 northern end of the stadium, and the theater whose (largely collapsed) stage building was also the northern wall of the stadium. The facade facing the stadium was 37 m wide, 19 m in height and decorated (with marble) with two registers of eight large arches separated by columns. On the ground floor six square doorways led into the theater (to the ‘orchestra’/stage, to be precise).
