The stadium ended in marble cladding of the back wall of the theatre.
The theatre stage was richly decorated with marble. The remains are still in place (and in a jumble because of the many earthquakes that hit it).
On the picture: The northeast half of the theater, seen from the center of the (collapsed) stage building.
The theater is some 100 m wide and could hold 20000 people.
