Roman Colosseum an elastodynamic cloak?

Roman arenas have survived in many earthquake-prone regions. Did the Romans inadvertently build seismic wave cloaks when they designed colosseums? Some researchers believe they did due to the arenas' resemblance to modern experimental elastodynamic cloaking devices. Photo: DAVID ILIFF. License: CC BY-SA 3.0
