This stone building, called the skene, formed the background for the acting out of a play. In earlier times it had been a temporary wooden building, but during the second half of the 4th century BC, a permanent stone building was put up. This stone building could represent a palace, temple or other structure, as befitted the play being performed. A second storey may have been built on top of this building.
