Ta-da! The Theatre of Dionysos

If you like ancient tragedy, this is where it happened. You know, Euripides, Sophocles, those sorts of dudes. I'm sure you remember: the gouging of eyes, mothers ripping off the heads of their sons, corpses left to rot, crazed and wandering souls, bath tubs full of blood, soups made from children...all the good stuff, the original horror movies. 

Well, it happened right here, folks, at that one line of rocks. So they think. Those four blocks may very well be all that's left of the original version of Athens' Theatre of Dionysos.

Alright then. Carry on.
