MY BEDSIDE TABLE: Chase, Raymond G. “Ancient Hellenistic and Roman amphitheatres, stadiums and theatres. The way they look now”. Portsmouth, Peter E. Randall Publisher, 2002.
OUT OF PRINT: The only reference to Aggar´s ancient theatre that I have found it was in Raymond Chase´s “Ancient Hellenistic and Roman amphitheatres, stadiums and theatres” , in that wonderful book you can find two photos. I have not found something more about it. When I visited Henchir Sidi Amara, some humble houses scattered in the middle of the field; I gave some walk round and when I found a boy tried to explained, making some pictures in my notebook, he took me to the ancient theatre remains. And he did, behind a big cacti it was the jewel, a little theatre lost in the heart of Tunisia.
