This volume deals with the buildings for public spectacles (theatres and odeia) in the Roman province of Achaea. Through the available evidence, the work aims to highlight the importance played by the theatrical culture in this area. As such, it not only focuses on the architectural development of the theatrical buildings over time and space, but it also takes into account the character of both the spectacles and other events which were carried out inside them, as well as their decorative elements. Outside Achaea, theatres of other provinces of the Roman Empire are dealt with as meaningful comparanda under several respects. The examination extends from the creation of the province of Achaea in 27 BC through the late 4th c. AD, the time to which the latest restoration work and the last additions of decorative elements are attested.
