Hierapolis Gate of Domitian


Categories: , ,


The Gate of Domitian, a triple gate flanked by two round towers, is the main northern entryway to the ancient city of Hierapolis. It was erected in 83 A.D. by Julius Frontinus, proconsul of Asia, in honor of the Roman Emperor Domitian. However, the emperor’s name was erased after his death in 96 A.D., because of his cruelty.
