Turkey: Archaeologists found ancient greek theater
Archaeologists have unearthed the glorious amphitheater of the ancient Greek city of Magarsos, currently named Karatas, in Turkey.
Çukurova University Professor Fatih Gülşen, the excavation’s scientific consultant, said Magarsus was one of the most important coastal towns of the ancient world. Huge structures, such as theaters, baths, stadiums and state buildings left their marks on the city.
Local authorities intend to use it for cultural events, 2,500 years after its construction, as they did with another ancient Greek theater found in Aspendos, west of Antalya.
