Ancient Theatre of Delos by vasiliosgavrilis

Delos was one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece, and one of the most robust trade centers as well.
The Theatre built originally of marble and completed in 250 BCE, the theatre was massive, equipped for nearly 7.000 visitors. Although it abandoned in 88 BCE, following an invasion of the island by Mithridates VI of Pontus (r. 120-63 BCE) during the The First Mithridatic War (89-85 BCE), it has long been admired and even imitated.
