This great amphitheater of the Augustan age stands a short distance from the modern town ofLucera. Like many other buildings in Daunia, it is a “complete amphitheater" with a natural sloped auditorium, and an elliptical plan. This remarkable structure has four entrances, two of which have been restored and their portals have been placed again. Two ionic capitals support a lintel with an inscription, surmounted by a triangular foundation with a shield and spear in the middle.
