Massive quadrae of a wall over 23 m

Could this be the remains of the city’s ancient theater?

In the last days of the first July campaign of Heraclea Sintica the team of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lyudmil Vagalinski revealed a 23-metre wall of massive hewn stones (quadrae), which touches a dirt road near the site and almost certainly continues beneath it. The wall is preserved at a height of at least 2 m and belongs to a building constructed before the new era. According to the head of excavations Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vagalinski, its location, the type of construction and rectangular holes on it suggest that this could be the remains of the theatre of Heraclea Sintica during the Hellenistic age. Listen to his arguments in the video of Archaeologia Bulgarica. Share with us the walk through the most interesting moments of the history of Heraclea Sintica, which will be enriched in the process of the study.
