Abstract: Using the irreducibility of a natural irreducible representation of the theta group of an ample line bundle on an abelian variety, we derive a bound for the number of $ n$-torsion points that lie on a given theta divisor. We present also two alternate approaches to attacking the case $ n=2$.
