GINNASIO ROMANO

 
Ginnasio veduta aerea

The so-called Gymnasium, a Roman building located in Syracuse along the Via Elorina, the ancient route that reached the sub-colony of Eloro, consists of a large elevated quadriporticus with a temple on the upper podium of the Italic type, in front of which northern, is the cavea of a theater, originally covered with marble. Inside and outside the temple are two wells that together with the base of an altar complete the current state of the monument, which was originally decorated with draped statues and various sculptures. The chronology of the second half of the I century BC is confirmed by the style of some artifacts.
