View looking down and east at the interior of the theater at Perga.

Given that it is not reconstructed, it is remarkably well–preserved.   The skene had five door, the jams and lintels of two of them are still preserved.  On the lower portion are marble reliefs depicting scenes from the life of Dionysus.  The cavea is larger than a semicircle and thus is of the Greek style.  Some fencing around the semicircular orchestra is still visible.
