This engraving shows, in poor perspective, a large circular amphitheatre. In the background we see Mount Ætna gently smoking, and in the foreground various people in Victorian costume disporting themselves high in the circle. In the centre ofth ring are some roughly-sketched figures of people.

The very perfect amphitheatre at Dorchester is much larger than that of Silchester, Stukeley having computed that it was capable of containing twenty-three thousand people. The form, however, of both ampliitheatres is precisely similar (Fig. 126). Their construction was different. The bank of the amphitheatre at Silchester is composed of clay and gravel; that at Dorchester of blocks of solid chalk.
