Theatre, Sabratha, Libya

The Roman Theatre of Sabratha in Libya. The magnificent late 3rd century theatre, that retains its three-storey architectural backdrop. This view of the empty theatre is from the top row of seating looking towards the stage and backdrop. In the background is the Mediterranean Sea and a clear blue sky. Sabratha, in the Zawia district in the northwestern of Libya, was the westernmost of the three cities of Tripolis. It lies on the Mediterranean coast about 65km (40 miles) west of Tripoli (ancient Oea). The archaeological site was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.Sabrathas port was established, perhaps about 500 BC, as a Phoenician trading-post that served as a coastal outlet for the products of the African hinterland. Sabratha became part of the short-lived Numidian Kingdom of Massinissa before being Romanized and rebuilt in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. The Emperor Septimus Severus was born nearby in Leptis Magna, and Sabratha reached its monumental peak during the rule of the Severans. The city was badly damaged by earthquakes during the 4th century, particularly the quake of AD 365. It was rebuilt on a more modest scale by Byzantine governors. Within a hundred years of the Arab conquest of the maghreb, trade had shifted to other ports and Sabratha dwindled to a village

The Roman Theatre of Sabratha - A Glimpse into Ancient Grandeur

EDITORS COMMENTS
. This print captures the timeless beauty of the Roman Theatre of Sabratha in Libya. Standing proudly against a backdrop of clear blue skies and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, this magnificent late 3rd century theater transports viewers back to an era of grandeur and cultural richness. From the top row of seating, one can admire the three-storey architectural backdrop that has managed to withstand the test of time. The stage, once adorned with vibrant performances and lively crowds, now sits empty but still exudes an air of majesty. Sabratha itself holds a significant place in history as it was part of Tripolis, being its westernmost city. Originally established as a Phoenician trading-post around 500 BC, it later became Romanized and flourished during the rule of Emperor Septimus Severus. However, earthquakes in the 4th century left their mark on this once-thriving city. Now inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982, Sabratha's archaeological wonders continue to captivate visitors from around the world. As trade shifted away from its port after Arab conquests, Sabratha gradually diminished into a humble village. Through Joe & Clair Carnegie's lens from Fine Art Storehouse comes this stunning portrayal that invites us to appreciate not only ancient architecture but also reflect upon how civilizations rise and fall over time.
