[Web: Vesti] Hellenistic theatre uncovered in SW Turkey

Archaeologists in Bodrum town of south-western province of Mugla have discovered an ancient theatre that was constructed in 400 B.C.. 

Dr. Derya Sahin, a faculty member of the Uludag University's Archaeology Department, said Monday that the 2,500-year-old ancient theatre was discovered during excavations in ancient Greek city Myndos in Bodrum. 

The theatre belongs to the Hellenistic period. We can say that it is a huge theatre, Dr. Sahin said. 

How big the ancient theatre is really will be known at the end of excavations in Myndos, said the archaeologists on site.
