New Week::New Theme: Round Ancient Roman Structures
Professional photographer, Leonor Gracias, captured this great angle of a shot of the Leptis Magna Arena outside Rome, Italy. I find it intriguing that many ancient structures were built in the round or oval.
From Touropia.com about this arena they state:
The Roman amphitheater of Leptis Magna dates from 56 AD and lies about a kilometer east of the city center. It was capable of seating 16,000 spectators. Unlike most Roman amphitheaters, it is built below the ground.
From Livius.org they state:
The oval arena measures 57 x 47 m. Today, a large part is covered with the stone slabs that once were on the seats, and other pieces of natural stone. Among these stones is an altar for Nemesis, the goddess of doom, and a favorite deity in amphitheaters.
