Figure 10 Identification of "reality zones"

Zone 1: (Green) This area of the fresco has very close correlation to both the physical remains of the Large Theatre and to Vitruvius’ formulae for theatre construction.
Zone 2: (Yellow) This area appears to be exaggerated in the y-axis if the elements are to follow Vitruvian ideals and human scaling
Zone 3: (Red) These areas while individual elements are proportionate to each other the whole level is discordant
Zone 4: (Blue) These areas show the depiction of elements beyond the structure of the stage itself.
Zone 5: (Cyan) Human depictions.
