Theater of Dionysus - Throne of the Priest

 

One of the things that the Romans added to the Theater of Dionysus in Athens, Greece, was a large wall, 1m high, that separated the orchestra area from the spectators' seats. This was designed to protect the spectators from some of the violent gladiatorial fights held here under Roman rule. The image above, facing west, shows not only the wall but also some of the V.I.P seats.
