The oval building has an area of 132.45 by 105.10 meters. The arena has dimensions of 67.95 by 41.65 meters. The outer ring is built of limestone and consists of three floors. On the long and short axes there are four towers. The lower two floors consist of 72 arcades and the upper ring has 64 rectangular openings. Because the amphitheatre is built on a slope, the side higher up on the hill only has two floors. There was room for 23,000 spectators. The arena was separated from the audience by an iron fence. There were fifteen entrances and under the floor of the arena there were tunnels from which gladiators and wild animals could enter the arena. The gladiators were mostly men, but sometimes there were women with whips to tame the lions.
