On the northern foothills of Olympus Mount, in an area that provides the complete control of the narrow passage from Macedonia to Thessaly, Dion is dominating. To the south of the city of Dion, outside its borders and on the west of the sanctuary of Demeter is the ancient theater. Its construction took place in the Hellenistic period (221-179 BC). Its name is attributed to Zeus. Zeus was also the patron god of Dion.
The edge of the ancient city of Dion begins in the 5th century B.C. when king of Macedonia was Archelaus, who had considered Dion as a sacred city, associated with the mythology of Olympus, and he had chosen it as the spiritual and cultural center of Macedonia, similar to Delphi and Olympia. The later excavations unearthed statues, vases, inscriptions mainly of Roman era. At the archaeological site one can admire the ruins of the ancient city with houses, temples, aqueducts and the ancient theater of Dion, where, in the summer, many performances are held. There are important findings in the Archaeological Museum of Dion.
