From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- The ima cavea is the lowest part of the cavea and the one directly surrounding the orchestra. It was usually preserved for the upper echelons of society.
- The media cavea directly follows the ima cavea and was open to the general public, though mostly reserved for men.
- The summa cavea is the highest section and was usually open to women and children.
The cavea was further divided vertically into cunei. A cuneus (Latin for "wedge"; plural, cunei) was a wedge-shaped division separated by the scalae or stairways.
