South of the Acropolis stands the world's oldest theatre. It was constructed in the 6th century BC and rebuilt in the 4th century BC. All the works of the great ancient dramatists Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes were first performed at this location during the 5th century BC. Walking uphill towards the Acropolis, you will come across the Eumenes Arcade (constructed in the 2nd century BC) and the Asklepios Temple. Further to the west is the Odeon of Herod Atticus, a Roman theatre still used for concerts and performances.
