Description
Summary:The basic aim of my thesis to examine more thorough amphitheatres within the territory of Pannonia inferior. Pannonia was divided by Marcus Ulpius Traianus Emperor at the beginning of the second century AD, which extended to the territory of present day four countries. Amphitheatres built in these provinces could not compete with the ancient world’s most famous building, Amphitheatre Flavium, which is better known as the Colosseum, in terms of capacity or size. In the nearly two centuries since then, Aquincum, Hungary's largest archaeological enterprise, has been the subject of more than 1 000 excavations up to 2019 and has resulted in the creation of 23 archaeological ruin parks. The history of Carnuntum and Aquincum are closely linked in the past and present. The importance of the two cities and their role in history show that two amphitheaters have been built on their territory.
