Abstract
  • The theater reliefs from the site of Hierapolis were first published in 1898 by Carl Humann and since then have been discussed by multiple scholars. However, rarely are all of the reliefs from the theater discussed in the same work. More often than not, scholars either choose to focus on the podium reliefs or on the reliefs from the porta regia and leave only a few cursory lines to deal with the rest of the sculpted reliefs from the theater, if they are mentioned at all. This paper seeks to look at the entire sculpted relief program from the theater at Hierapolis and not only analyze how the iconographic program of the theater fits together, but also the message that is being broadcast to the citizens of Hierapolis.
