Jerash is one of the best preserved Roman Cities in the Eastern Mediterranean. It was a large city with three theaters, the largest seating over three thousand, and a hippodrome where Roman chariots are still raced for the tourists. Jerash is set in the hills of Gilead and was founded in 170 BC and may have had a population of 25,000 in the second century.
