Mausoleum of Theodoric
Its current structure is divided into two decagonal orders, one above the other and both made of Istria stone. It is roofed with a single 300 ton Istria stone of 10 metres in diameter. A niche leads down to a room which was probably a chapel for funeral liturgies. A stair leads to the upper floor. A circular porphyry tub is located in the centre of the floor, in which Theodoric was supposed to be buried. His remains were removed during Byzantine rule.
