In the lower right corner of the picture: the debris of the collapsed stage building of the theater.
To their left: a section of the seating area of the stadium (on its northwest side). The stadium is situated to the southwest of the theater, and is thought to date from the same period (2nd century AD); it was 216 m long and 40 m wide. The spectators seats on the northwest side were cut out in the rocky mountain slope; most of them are still visible today. The seating area on the opposite side was built upon its own foundation, but has largely disappeared, due to time and to the building activities of the village people; some parts of this northeast section are even integrated in the present farm buildings.
