With a distance across of 96 meters (315 ft), the theater gave seating to 15,000 spectators. The theater was inherent 155 by the Greek planner Zenon, a local of the city. It was intermittently repaired by the Seljuqs, who utilized it as a caravansary, and in the thirteenth century the stage building was changed over into a castle by the Seljuqs of Rum. It was an antiquated Greco-Roman city in Antalya region of Turkey.
