Look also at the beautiful bas-reliefs adorning the front stage : the philosopher and the tragedy-comedy masks

Hi Leo. Most of these Lybian monument have been restored by italian archaeologists. As you see they did an impressive job,these monuments having been destroyed down to the ground by a massive earthquake during the 4th century A.D, and laid dawn since then... You may be proud of that :)!! Cheers, Cottius

Hi Cottius, Really not so massive as that in Bosra. L2 and YS1. Greetings

Many thanks for the comment and the YS Maciej! Indeed, the sea added something to the decorum here! We fully understand that the genial architect who designed this theater wanted to integrate it somehow in it. He obviously succeeded! Greetings, Cottius
