The exact size and placement of a 2,500-year-old ancient theater that was unearthed last year during the excavations in the Aegean province of Muğla’s Gümüşlük district has been determined.
“The ancient theater underground is as large as the Ephesus Ancient Theater. We have been waiting permission from the ministry to bring it to light,” head of excavations Professor Mustafa Şahin said.
Excavation of the ancient city of Myndos was initiated last year by the Culture and Tourism Ministry and Uludağ University Archaeology Department five years ago.
