Helvia Recina - Roman Theatre
|Alternate name||Helvia Recina|
|Location||Macerata, Province of Macerata, Marche, Italy|
It was probably a municipium until it was refounded by Pertinax and Septimius Severus, after which it bore the name Colonia Helvia Ricina Pertinax. The site is now deserted, but considerable ruins of a theatre and remains of baths and other buildings (all in brickwork of the Imperial period) still exist; also the fragments of an ancient bridge over the Potenza. Flavian of Ricina was a bishop here in the 3rd century.
