The monumental gate (Tetrapylon)
Tetrapylon, meaning “four gates” as it is made up of four groups of four columns each, it served as a ceremonial gateway. It leads from the main north-south street of the town into a large forecourt in front of the Temple or Sanctuary of Aphrodite. The gateway was built ca. 200 AD.
The quality of the reliefs throughout the parts of the building probably surpasses anything found at any other New Kingdom site.
