Title:   The Odeum
Author:   Homer A. Thompson
Abstract:   A rectangular building with poros foundations was excavated in the central part of the eastern area of the excavation. The southwest corner, lying in Section Μ, was excavated in 1934 and the rest of the building, which falls in Sections Ν, Ξ and Ω, in 1935. The building consists of a rectangular auditorium or theater surrounded by a corridor. Excavation revealed a marble orchestra floor, bedrock cuttings for the lower seats of the cavea and the bedrock foundations for a stage. The building was destroyed by fire probably related to the Herulian invasion in 267 A.D. The east side and the north end of the Burned Building were excavated in Sections Ξ and Ν'. A late Roman complex, of which the Giants were the northern limit, was built over the earlier poros building.
