THE THEATRE OF DIONYSUS, ATHENS, GREECE
The Theatre of Dionysus (500 BC), on the south slope of the Athenian Acropolis, was where the works of the great tragic and comic poets of antiquity were first staged. The theatre was dedicated to Dionysus, the god of wine and the patron of drama and it hosted the City Dionysia festival. Among those who competed were the dramatists of the classical era whose works have survived: Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, and Menander.
