The stadium is the largest and best preserved construction of this type to survive till today. It measured 262 by 59 and on about 30 rows of seats could hold 30.000 spectators. It was built in the 1st-2nd century AD and was used mainly for athletic events and games, although it was also used for periodical sculpture matches!
