The theatre of Diokaisareia (today Uzuncaburc), located in the Roman province of Cilicia (Turkey), has been studied within the German Archaeological Research Project directed by Detlev Wannagat. The volume offers a thorough historical and architectural analysis of the building erected in the second half of the 2nd century AD. The text is complemented by an extended collection of figures and plates, providing a detailed graphic and photographic documentation and reconstruction. This is an important contribution to the study of Roman theatres and architectural decoration in Asia Minor.
