THE HERACLES GATE (Ephesus)

undefinedThe Heracles gate was built in the 4th century A.D. It was located on the Curettes road. This monumental gate was a two storey building with six columns on each floor. Some of the columns with reliefs are exhibited on Domitian square today. There are Heracles statues attached on to two of these columns.

 

The arch of the gate is missing. Some of the materials used in the gate during the construction were taken from the other buildings, which were made in the 2nd century.
