- A 6th-century Athenian theatre
- Dedicated to the god of wine and ecstasy
- Considered to be the birthplace of European theatre
Built in the late 6th century, the Theatre of Dionysus is Athens’s preeminent theatre, and is nestled at the foot of the Athenian Acropolis.
Dedicated to the Athenian god Dionysus, lord of wine making and ecstasy, it is considered by many to be the birthplace of European theater—not to mention the model for future Greek theatres.
