In the 2nd century AD, an amphitheatre was built that could accommodate 18,000 spectators in the north-western part of the town of Solin. Its appearance at that time is still easy to reconstruct today. The central part of the auditorium was reserved for the town’s government and in that very place part of the inscription: “RP DONO DEDIT” was found, proving that the amphitheatre was a gift from a rich Salonitan. There are also the “Porta Pompae” through which gladiator processions once entered as well as spaces for animals (carcases). The amphitheatre survived the failure of Salona, but was demolished by Venetian strategists in the 17th century.
