  • Always on the meander River, but closer to its mouth, we find the city of magnesia of the meander, founded in 530 BC by Greek settlers. His excavations are currently underway on a huge site that requires to travel by car from one building to another. The stadium, exceptional visit, is being desenfouissement (work started in 2011 by a Turkish team). It is still partly covered with a layer of thick soil of 8 meters. It comes out almost unscathed and let you discover bas-reliefs (some strange) at the foot of each staircase. The grand theatre is completely ruined and buried, barely subsists you he shape of the cavea, now planted with olive trees. No step is no longer visible. But the best discovery is that of the "theatron", whose nature and the precise function are not completely known. Indeed several details matter from thinking about a habitual use of theatre. First of all there is no stage building. Moreover, the public entrance is through a door in the center of her orchestra; Finally the proedrie (Foundation of the first rank for the elites) consists of a series of marble seats embedded in niches, thus hiding the rest of the public. Dating from the first century of our era, it seems that this building has never been completed. It suggests construction phases, including blocks of marble under size.
