Roman Odeon


Just west of the Casa Romana is one of the most important ancient landmarks of Kos, the now restored Roman Odeon. It was more than a venue for musical and other cultural events as the Senate of Kos gathered here, with 14 rows of seating (9 have been restored) creating a 750-seat capacity. As you admire the amphitheatre, imagine that it was originally roofed and richly decorated with statues and other artwork (including the statue of Hippocrates in the Archaeological Museum) and was linked to workshops and other buildings. It is still used to host cultural events today.
