About Odeon of Kos

The Odeon of Kos dates back to the second or third century and would have served as a Roman theatre.

Today, several of its original rows remain and it is certainly possible to imagine how the Odeon of Kos would have looked in its heyday.

Beyond the original rows, the Odeon of Kos has also undergone restoration and the site is in excellent condition, even though it is no longer all original. There are also the remains of a Roman gym and bathhouse nearby.

Along with other Roman sites in Kos, such as the Nymphaeum of Kos and the Casa Romana, the Odeon of Kos is well worth a visit when staying on the island.
