Plovidv, Bulgaria

Layers of occupation are evident on the contemporary landscape of Plovdiv.  Uncovered here is the ancient Roman stadium.  There is a most interesting Latin term for the arched passageway between the rows of seats.  It was called a vomitorium because it allowed spectators to "spew forth" after an event was over.  [2010]
