Transcript of The Theater of Pompey

The Theater of Pompey
Original Name: theatrum Pompeianum or theatrum Pompei
It was built around 55 BC by Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus.
The theater was built to glorify its patron on the battlefield and to win the public's and aristocracy's favor. Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus paid for this theater to gain political popularity during his second consulship.
Pieces from the structure can be found throughout the city of Rome. Much of the theater is not made out of the original material; only the foundation is the same. Many hotels and other buildings have been built on top of it.
The Theater of Pompey was the first stone theater in Rome. But, not all of it was a theater. A large part of the site contained a vast portico(a porch). At the end of this portico was Pompey's Curia, where the Senate met to assassinate Caesar.
