The size of the amphitheater, elliptical, are remarkable: m.140x90. Under the Sand (m.70x40), enclosed by a high podium, there is a high m.1.60 corridor, called "crypt", which was used for the output of gladiators and wild animals. Above the podium were the first steps for the spectators to respect, with over engraved with the names of the personalities who occupied those places, as proof of this, it is still one of marble with the name. Followed, then in height, the ima cavea, the only auditorium remained, while the average and the summa cavea caveasi can only imagine the foundations remain.
