Encyclopedia > Amphitheatrum Castrense

The Amphitheatrum Castrense is a Roman amphitheatre in Rome, next to the church of S. Croce in Gerusalemme. It dates to the second or third century. It is unusual for being built of brick (rather than the more usual stone), and for having later been incorporated into the Aurelian Wall.
