View over Theatre of Dionysus - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Descending the southern slopes of the Acropolis, once you have passed through the remains of the Stoa of Eumenes colonnade, the terrain opens up again giving a good view over the Theatre of Dionysus and Athens to the south. This panorama shows that aspect, taken late in the afternoon in early June 2017. It is quiet and restful up here, with few people wondering around. From here you also get a good impression of the vast building effort at the top of the Acropolis Hill.

The Theatre of Dionysys lies on the southern edge of the Acropolis site in Athens. Fully named the 'Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus', it was dedicated to the Greco-Roman god Dionysus, the god almost all things related to party, including grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy. The site has been used since the 6th century BC, or for nearly 2,500 years. At it's prime, the theatre could seat 17,000 people. What remains today dates from Roman times.

The theatre is sometimes confused with the smaller Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre, which is located past the Stoa of Eumenes, further up the hill.
