The bouleuterion, the hall of the council of representatives of the people, was built between the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 3rd century BC.
The structure was rectangular, with columns at the front, which enclosed a semicircular cavea open to the east.
The six rows of seats in the staircase were preceded by a front row for the authorities, with a backrest and armrests.
In the 3rd century AD, in the late Roman Empire, it was transformed into an Odeon, a place for listening to music and singing exercises, with a richly decorated mosaic floor.
