  • The Antique Theater in Plovdiv is almost 2 000 years old. That shows an inscription in a Greek language from the 90s AD found in the most distinguished attraction of Plovdiv. The carved on the stone letters are from a monument of the first mayor of Philipopol Titus Fame Cotis. The text says that he has contributed to the development of the city and building great buildings. It is also famous as the Amphitheater.

    Titus Fame ruled Philipopol during the reign of The Roman Emperor Dominitsian. Titus Fane was the heir of the Thracian Kings and the first person in the entire Roman province of Thrace. The inscription indicates that Plovdiv was the “ mother city “ or the main city in the province.

    The theater had about 7 000 seats. It held gladiator fights and regional meetings.  The Ancient Theater is one of the most recognizable symbols of the city under the hills.
