The Theatre of Dionysys is properly called the 'Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus'. It lies on the southern edge of the Acropolis site in Athens. The theatre was dedicated to the Greco-Roman god Dionysus, the god almost all things related to party, including winemaking and wine, ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy. The site has been used since the 6th century BC. 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.
