During the 5th century, the stage of the theater of Dionysus in Athens was probably raised only two or three steps above the level of the orchestra, and was perhaps 25 feet wide and 10 feet deep. The skene was directly in back of the stage, and was usually decorated as a palace, temple, or other building, depending on the needs of the play. When theatre historians speak of the "Greek theatre" they are usually speaking about Athens in the fifth century b.c.e. From the Greek word for dancing, what was the name given to the rectangular or circular ground-level playing space in Greek theatre used primarily by the chorus?

This century represents the peak of a period in human history popularly known as Axial period saw the emergence of five major thought streams springing from five great thinkers in different parts of the world: Buddha and Mahavira in India, Zoroaster in Persia, Pythagoras in Greece and Confucius in China.

A Greek chorus, or simply chorus (Greek: χορός, choros), in the context of Ancient Greek tragedy, comedy, satyr plays, and modern works inspired by them, is a homogeneous, non-individualised group of performers, who comment with a collective voice on the dramatic action. The chorus consisted of between 12 and 50 players, who variously danced, sang or spoke their lines in .

In the mid-4th century bc, raked tiers of stone seats capable of accommodating as many as 17, spectators were constructed, as well as an enhanced stone skene. Major revisions, probably including the introduction of a raised stage, were carried out in c. ad 61 under the Roman emperor Nero. After the 4th century the theatre fell into disuse and decay. The Theatre of Dionysus (or Theatre of Dionysos, gr: Θέατρο του Διονύσου) is an ancient theatre in Athens on the south slope of the Akropolis hill, built as part of the sanctuary of Dionysos Eleuthereus (Dionysus the Liberator).The first orchestra terrace was constructed on the site around the mid- to late-sixth century BC, where it hosted the City Dionysia.
