29 South Theater Stage Doors in Ancient Jerash, Jordan

These four ornate portals with pediments suspended with columns run parallel to the raised stage of the South Theater. There were two stories when it was constructed in 90 AD. To put this into historical perspective, this amphitheater was finished when Domitian was the last Roman emperor of the Flavian Dynasty and the Colosseum in Rome had opened ten years earlier. The woman in the background is standing in front of one of the entrance/exit passages called a parodos.
