The Buildings

The theatre was erected in Hellenistic times on the northern slope of the hill situated in the southern part of the city. Its capacity is estimated at 10 to 15 thousand spectators. This theatre is typical for Greek architecture in Asia Minor. 21 rows of seats have been preserved as well as numerous Greek inscriptions. In Roman period the theatre was partly reconstructed and an ornamented skene was added. In 202 I read that a frieze with theatre masks seemed to be complete, and would be reinstalled.

The Bouleuterion

Bouleuterion. It is located at the centre of the city, with a rectangular plan along an east-west axis. The excavation of the courtyard is not complete. On its western side, measuring 24,95 x 29,80 m, are semicircular seating steps and on the plane to its east is the courtyard. On the interior façade of the north anta wall are Greek inscriptions, and on the exterior are Latin ones. The Latin ones show prices of goods to be sold in town. Thus inflation was prevented. The building must date from the first century AD. Floral ornamentation and inscriptions date from the last period. The oldest  of these descriptions is dated to October-November 1608.

Stratonicea Bouleteurion exterior

A bouleuterion also translated as council house, assembly house, and senate house, was a building in ancient Greece which housed the council of citizens of a democratic city state. These representatives assembled at the bouleuterion to confer and decide about public affairs. There are several extant bouleuteria around Greece and its former colonies. It should not be confused with the Prytaneion, which housed the executive council of the assembly and often served as the boule's mess hall.
