dc.descriptionThe Roman fortress of Augustodunum (now Autun in Burgundy) was founded in the first century, B.C.E., during the reign of the Emperor Augustus. Several remnants of that Gallo-Roman culture survive in Autun. Among them is the open-air theater with tiered seating created for dramatic performances. Based on available evidence, this amphitheater seems to have been the largest space of its kind in the Roman world, measuring 148 meters in diameter and accommodating 20,000 spectators. Only part of the Roman theater has been restored. Today the space is used for cultural presentations such as historical re-enactments and concerts.ca. August 1981en
