The Yenişehir Kapı, Yenişehir being the next town. Before a restoration I show in 2018.

I climbed the adjacent wall and here look back to where I came from (roughly to the West)

The wall in Hellenistic times originally enclosed a square and had a total length of 2839 meters. Later it was extended into a polygon, with a total length of 4420 meters. The oldest part is from the times of Hadrian, most of the main wall dates from the third century. It has been constantly extended and repaired.
