The theatre is the main feature of Aspendos, attracting visitors who come here to see the most magnificent example of such architecture still remaining in Turkey. That the theatre remained so well-preserved till this day, is due to the fact of the thought-out construction method of the architect Zeno under the rule of emperor Marcus Aurelius (in 161-180 A.D.) and also to the late Byzantines and Seljuks, who used the theatre and kept in good condition.
