Photographer's Note

I made this picture of the antique stadium of Aphrodisias from about a height of 500 m sitting in a helicopter.
This stadium is one of the best kept stadiums of the antique world and has about 30.000 seats.
In a city with atmost 20.000 inhabitants, most probably it was used also from the citizens of neighbouribg cities.
In a later poriod (Roman period 300-300 AD) they built at one end (front part of the picture) also a circular arena which was used for gladiator feights. There are also many graffitis on the seats which celebrates famous gladiators, wrestlers, runners etc.
