26 Seating at Small Theatre in Pompeii, Italy

The Small Theatre in Pompeii was so named because it could only hold 1,000 to 1,500 people. This venue was built around 75 BC for staging intimate musical concerts, poetry readings and mime performances. The Teatro Piccolo od Odeon was covered by a wooden dome. Notice the seats on the left-hand side. They were covered by pieces of a soft masonry called tufa.
