Dora (Dor)

DORA (Dor), ancient Palestina, modern Israel.
COORDENATES: 32º37’12.06’’N // 34º55’07.48’’E
TIPOLOGY: Roman theatre. Urban.
CAVEA: Facing north-north-west. 60 m. diameter. Aditus maximi visible remains.
ORCHESTRA: Paved in stone.
STAGE BUILDING: Columns remains of grey and coloured marble. Corinthian capitals found.
LOCATION: 200 m. north of northern edge of town. Dor is 60 klm. north from Tel Aviv.
MY BEDSIDE TABLE: Segal, Arthur; “Theatres in Roman Palestine & provincia Arabia”. New York, E.J. Brill., 1995. // Sear, Frank; “Roman theatres: an architectural study”. Oxford University Press, 2006.// Ciancio Rossetto, Paola; Giuseppina Pisani Sartorio (eds); “Teatri Greci e Romani: alle origini del linguaggio rappresentato”. Rome: SEAT, 1995.


OUT OF PRINT: Somebody that I found in my visit to ancient Dora told me that the ancient theatre remains are actually the private WC of the bathers... well some latin comedy was always full of eschatology.
