Architect Henri Revoil cleared the underground areas of the amphitheatre and the room known as the ‘salle cruciforme’ [circular room] due to its shape. Holes, originally used to hold the beams supporting the floor and two lead counterweights marked with Respublica Nemausensis, point to the presence of trap doors through which the gladiators would have entered and exited during performances.
