According to the construction technique and the planning specifications, it is a late Hellenistic theater.The building, which had a 5000 seat capacity, slid during an earthquake and was ruined considerably and most of the stones were taken away because it was used as a quarry during the later centuries. Now, it has been excavated and prepared for restoration
