On with our walk along the wall. By the way, I walked counter clockwise.

We are here at the next gate, this is the Yenişehir Kapı, Yenişehir being the next town. I climbed the adjacent wall so we're looking down on it.

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.
