Photographer's Note

The theatre in Epidaurus has a diameter of 120 m and the last row of seats is at a height of 24 m.
It is known for its exceptional acoustics. Any sound on the open-air stage, whether a whisper, or sound of a dropped coin is perfectly audible to all spectators, even in the topmost row of seats, that is, nearly 60 m away.
Tour guides demonstrate this acoustical effect dropping small things on the central point of the stage.

In my photo you can see a woman clapping her hands and a man who want to drop a coin to prove great acoustics.

In WS a closer picture of both persons.
