An amphitheater (the ancient Greek 'amphitheatron') is a type of public place of Roman civilization, used to host shows and games (munera, gladiatorial combat and venationes, animal control). The oldest was built in Etruria and Campania, and from the late second century. C. This type of building is a Roman creation, and no history or in Greece or Asia Minor. Apart from its function, the most noticeable difference between an amphitheater and a Roman theater classic, is that the amphitheater is circular or oval, while the theater is semicircular. We must also differentiate the circus amphitheater, which was used for racing events and had an elliptical shape. The tiers of seats (cavea) was divided into four zones, with the bottom to the senators and senior officials of the Roman administration, the middle for the populace and higher for women and the disenfranchised. First built by carved stone was later used and prepared the concrete arches and vaults.
