Roman Theatre, downtown Amman, Jordan. Built during the reign of Antonius Pius (138-161AD), the large and steeply raked theatre could seat 6000 people and is divided into 3 tiers. It is built into the hillside, oriented north to keep the sun off the spectators and was restored in 1957. View from above with cityscape of downtown Amman in the background. Picture by Manuel Cohen
