The Roman Theatre was first discovered in 1847, but it was not until 1930 - 1935 that it was fully excavated. As visible today it is the remains of a complex structure that grew up over a long period from AD160 to AD300. The theatre was used for religious rites, ceremonies and entertainments, and was capable of seating several thousand spectators. It would no doubt have attracted devotees from far afield.
