Like the fort, the amphitheater is located on what was once an island. The archaeological site survives as a hollow, anthropic depression measuring ca. 60 by 50 meters, with a depth of 3 meters. Excavation in 1849 identified three entrances. The structure is typically dated to the third through fifth centuries.
