It is built on a hillside, at the feet of the Acropolis, and has a panoramic view of the port and the city of Thassos.The father of medicine, Hippocrates, who lived in Thassos studying its therapeutic herbs, mentioned the existence of the theatre as early as the 5th century BC. The theatre was renovated in the 4th century BC, and once again during the Roman times, when it acquired its present form.It was made entirely of white Thassos marble, both the koilon (audience) and the skene (scene). Today efforts are still being made to restore the marble seats and the theatre orchestra, and recent excavations revealed a second stage, behind the level of the first, unique in terms of archaeological data.
