TiyatroEnglish: The Theater of Caunus, with a seating capacity for 5000 spectators, faces southwest, complying with the Anatolian tradition and follows Hellenistic tradition with respect to its plan. The Theatron (sic) having a diameter of 75 m and with an inclination of 27 degrees is supported by the Analemma, which rises up to 15 m in places free of the slope. Analemma is separated from the stage building (Skene) by open entrances at two sides (Parados). Theatron is divided into 9 wedge-shaped kermis by 8 stairways, the steps of which are 19 cm high. Each kermis is made up of 33 seats. These seats are divided horizontally into two by a corridor (Diazoma) that extends the entire length of the Theatron. Diazoma is connected to two passages covered by barrel vaults at the north and north-east. The Orchestra, which is 22.80 m in diameter, has a horseshoe form and is at the same level with the lowest level of seats.
