The Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus is a major open-air theatre and one of the earliest preserved in Athens and it is considered the first theatre in the world which was used for festivals in honour of the god Dionysus. For the Greeks in ancient Athens, the Theatre of Dionysus was a very important part of their lives. Presently it is considered to be the place where European theatre had its beginnings. The theatre was built at the time when 'drama' or 'theatre' was first being created. The cult of Dionysus was brought to Athens in the 6th C BC, and the theatre was built as part of the temple precinct.
