Cleopatra and Marc Anthony

Cleopatra came here in ~37 B.C.to meet Marc Anthony, and it's said that she arrived on a highly
decorated barge rowed up the Cydnus River (aka Nehri River) and would have had to enter by (or near)
this gate. The gate was actually demolished and rebuilt in 2 A.D. and then went through another
restoration ~1994 and looks nothing like the original, apparently.

Canon PowerShot S400
1/250s f/7.1 at 7.4mm full exif
