Marble thrones in the Theatre of Dionysus, Athens, Greece

The Theatre of Dionysus, Athens, Greece. Alterations to the stage were made in the Hellenistic period, and 67 marble thrones (4 pictured here) were added around the periphery of the orchestra, inscribed with the names of the dignitaries that occupied them. The marble thrones that can be seen today in the theatre take the form of klismos chairs, and are thought to be Roman copies of earlier versions. Date: circa 1910s
