Class Presentation: "Antioch Through the Ages: the Theater at Daphne"

103 Scheide Caldwell House

Antioch-on-the-Orontes has been the focus for scholarly attention at Princeton since the excavations of the 1930s. Last year a class in the Art and Archaeology Department taught by Alan Stahl studied a sector of the site excavated within the ancient city itself and reported on it at a public program. This year’s class has focused on the Theater of Daphne, on a hilltop overlooking the city, notorious as the site of pagan dramas and festivals well into the Christian period. The students will report on their re-examination of the published chronology of the theater, its architecture and décor, and its use in the context of the historical development of Antioch and its area.
