The Ancient Theater of Argos was built in 320 BCE and became closely associated with the Nemean Games after they moved to Argos in 270 BCE. Renovations under Emperor Hadrian point to its significance during the high empire. The exact moment it fell into disuse is unknown, but was abandoned by the late fourth century CE. The French School at Athens conducted excavations at the site in 1890, 1930, 1954-56, 1981-82, and  1986-87.
