History

Trier and its amphitheatre resembled many Roman cities of its time in that many infamous gladiatorial contests occurred there. The structure which was dug into the side of a hill was erected around the 2nd century A.D during Antoninus Pius' rule. It could accommodate approximately 20,000 spectators[1] and was built into what was the city's wall.[2] When Constantius Chlorus moved to Trier, Germany around 293 he renovated the amphitheater.[3]
