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.
