Remarks

This hybrid edifice (theatre-amphitheatre) was situated outside the town, in a place known as Grohan. C. Ménard amended the caption of the illustration (p. 1) as follows: 'INSPECTOR CVRIOSE, QVISQVIS ES, Lusit in cćlo, nobis absentibus, sculptoris industria, Cum GROANNI Sciographiam reprćsentans, quam baltheis vndique cingentibus clausam debuerat, č quibus per fornices hinc atque hinc tendoretur (sic). In Caveam, prothyro contraxit, ouique retudit acuminationem. Sed errorem cćli hunc, editio forte altera, correctiorque reformabit'.
