Tiyatro Çeşmesi

English: The theater fountain is located within vaulted niche of 11.85 m inserted into the supporting wall of the theater (Analemma). This fountain, without doubt, not only serves the audience of the games in the theater, but also to the dense human traffic strolling on the upper terrace where the monumental public buildings of the city are located. Dated to the 4th century B.C. and covering an area of 10.60 x 6.00 m, this monumental fountain has a very special design. In "⨅" form, in between its side walls, the two columns are located in-antis. Pools extending in front of the side and back walls leave a court in the center. Water channeled first to a channel located high up inside the back wall is directed to five gutters, from where its sprinkles to five corresponding openings on the platform. In this way reaching to a lower canal, it is then directed to the six gutters - two on each wall - pouring into the fountains. Square openings, above each of the gutters on the side walls, facilitate maintenance of the channels.




Turkish: Tiyatro çevre duvarının (Analemma) oluşturduğu l I.85 m genişliğindeki tonoz örtülü nişin içinde kalan anıtsal Çeşme. kuşku yoktur ki, yalnızca Tiyatro izleyenlerine değil, aynı zamanda üzerinde anıtsal kamu binalarının yer aldığı yukarı terasın yoğun insan trafiğine de hizmet vermiştir. Buluntularına göre İ.Ö. 4. yüzyılda inşa edilmiş olan |0.60 x 6.00 metre boyutundaki bu anıtsal Çeşme'nin tasarımı özeldir: "⨅" formundadır ve önde, yan duvarlar arasında iki sütunun yer aldığı in-antis tarzdadır. Arka ve yarı duvarlar önündeki "Daldırma Havuzu", ortada bir avlu bırakmaktadır. Su, öncelikle arka duvar içindeki üst kanala gelmekte ve bununla bağlantılı beş çörtenden de platform üzerindeki karşılıkları olan ağızlara birer fıskiye gibi düşmektedir. Böylece alt kanala ulaşan su, bu defa her bir duvar üzerinde ikişer olmak üzere toplam altı adet çörtenle de havuza boşalmaktadır. Yan duvarlardaki her bir çörtenin hemen üst yanındaki kare formlu ağızlar, tıkandığında kanalın açılmasına müdahale olanağı vermektedir.
