Summary (English)

  • The 2003 excavations in the ancient theatre of Foinike were located in three areas: South of the scaena, the area between the western analema and the orchestra, and the western part of the scaena. The terrace system was found to continue westwards and consisted of a series of rooms. A humus layer covers all the terracing walls. The area between the analema and the orchestra was excavated using a JCB machine to remove the topsoil in order to reach the level of the orchestra. The excavations to the south of the analema revealed remains of the entrance (parodos), which consisted of a number of stone quadrangle blocks and represents the main entrance to the ancient Greek theatre. At the end of the season, the revealed structures were backfilled.
