Ancient Roman theatre, built 55 BC on the "Campus Martius" (Campo Marzio) for Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus (Pompey the Great). Some remains are visible in the basements of various buildings, e. g. the "Albergo della Lunetta" (Piazza del Paradiso 68) and the "Ristorante Da Pancrazio" (Piazza del Biscione 92).
