The facility is among the largest Roman structures in the Balkans. The massive edifice is 180m long and had a capacity of over 30 000 spectators. It is believed that it was built during the reign of Septimus Severus (193-211).
The reconstruction process will be carried out by a consortium selected in open competition staged in March this year, Dnevnik daily reported.
The site is to be renovated, while concrete blocks and other modern construction will be removed so that the archaeological area can be revealed, the report said.
