35 Seating of Amphitheater’s Arena in Pompeii, Italy

Some of the seating sections of Pompeii’s Anfiteatro, called cavea by the Romans, were dug into the side of an embankment. The lowest level (ima cavea) was reserved for the social elite. The Amphitheatre had a capacity for 12,000 people. However, some experts suggest it could accommodate several thousand more spectators of gladiator flights, mock naval battles and performances by wild animals.
