The El-Jem amphitheater in Tunisai, was constructed betweem 230 and 238 CE is 65 metres long and 39 metres wide, large enough to host more than one show at a time. The stone used was too soft for fine sculpture, which causes the decorations rather crude. The upper part of the tiers were used as a sort of VIP tribune, where roofed rooms allowed hiding from the hot sun.
