The ancient theatre of Philippopolis is a historical building in the city center of Plovdiv (ancient Philippopolis), Bulgaria. Although this structure is commonly referred to as an amphitheatre, it is actually a traditional Greek theatre.  The construction of the theatre dates back to the time of Emperor Trajan (Latin name: Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nervae filius Augustus) who reigned 98–117 AD.
