The Theatre of Thoricus is one of the oldest surviving Greek theatres. Located north of Lavrion, almost adjacent to the city, it dates back to 6th century B.C. With 21 rows of seats, the theatre had a capacity of 4.000 spectators.
Unlike other Greek theatres of later eras, it is elliptical rather than circular in shape and has a rectangular, rather than circular, orchestra. Very close to the west of the theatre there is an ore washery, and to the south of the orchestra there is a cemetery, which was in use from the 6th to the 4th century B.C.
