Archaeologists finish excavation of Roman arts center

Archaeologists have completed excavation of a 900 seat arts center, built in 123 A.D. by emperor Hadrian. This auditorium featured 3 halls where Roman nobility would gather to hear poetry, philosophy, and speeches.

This discovery is considered to be the most important since the uncovering of the Forum in the 1920s.
