Perge's Hellenistic Gate

The Hellenistic Gate. It had three entrances, located at the east, west and south side. The south gate had a yard in its front. It dates back to the second century BC. During Hadrian’s time a triumphal arch was constructed. The yard became the Honour Yard in 121 AD. The walls seem to have been covered with coloured marble at that time, with columns adorning the façade. In niches statues were displayed. A woman, Plancia Magna, became very important at that time as an administrator of the city, priestess of Artemis and of the Imperial Cult. The grateful people honoured her with statues all over town, now to be seen in the Antalya Museum (see my gallery).
