Roman Amphitheater of Sutri

The Roman amphitheatre was completely dug into tufa rock between the second and first century BC. It was forgotten and covered with soil for many centuries, until 1935 when the local population brought it to light.

It has an elliptical shape with three rows of bleachers and could accommodate over 9000 people. As with the Flavian Amphitheatre in Rome, it had a final crowning with niches and statues that have been partially preserved.
