The Quarter of the Theatre, perhaps the most interesting part of town, has been for the most part uncoverd. There were roads, workshops and shops which provided the thriving business community of Delos, with furniture, marble tables and pots, and impressive utensils of stone or clay.
The Theatre was built in the 3rd century BC. and presents the usual form of an ancient theater with its hollow, the space where the spectators sat on the western side of the hill with a magnificent view of the sea and the ports, semi-circular orchestra and the stage. From the marble seats that could have accommodated an audience of about five thousand viewers, few remain intact today. Unlike the seats in the front row around the orchestra and the Presidency, which were the only seats with back support and still exist.
