Why is Portus so important?

Sorry, but how can the discovery of a 'private amphitheatre' at Portus near Rome be bracketed in the same category as 'such wonders as Stonehenge and Angkor Wat in Cambodia'.
Yes, that's what head of the dig Prof Simon Keay (pictured right in The Times) told the Daily Telegraph and others.
Maybe it is, but why?
On what we've read so far there's nothing to suggest why that should be so.
What more is there about this that we haven't been told to justify that extraordinary comparison?
And why didn't any of the journalists ask him?
