Ancient Odeons and Bouleuterions in Turkey
The almost square building opposite the holy hall dates from the 2nd century B.C. in the stand visible today. It has a special feature. The cavea is not semicircular as usual, the seating steps are rectangular to each other.
The stairs led to a gallery whose outer wall and the roof-bearing columns formed the back of the building. A door led to the upper street. In the middle of the orchestra there is still a marble altar. It is decorated with busts of gods, bull heads with wreaths and laurel leaves. The altar dates back to the 2nd century BC. The building had a saddle roof supported by two parallel rows of columns on the sides.
