Ancient Theater

Ancient Theater Review

The only vestige of ancient Mytilini is the freely accessible ruin of an Ancient Theater, one of the largest in ancient Greece, from the Hellenistic period. Pompey admired it so much that he copied it for his theater in Rome. Though the marbles are gone, the shape, carved out of the mountain, remains beautifully intact.
