The bossed ashlar retaining wall of the Hellenistic Theatre at Alabanda, an ancient city of Caria, Anatolia, Turkey. The Theatre is situated on a natural south facing hillside overlooking the fertile green valley and originally could seat 6200 spectators. The theatre was altered during the Roman period to accommodate gladiatorial combats and other gruesome activities. The city was also known as Antiochia of the Chrysaorians and is located near Doganyurt, Cine, Aydın Province, southwestern Turkey.
