English Text:

The so-called Heracles Gate bordered the Curetes Street to the east. Its present appearance derives from late antique adaptations, and the appearance of the imperial gateway cannot be reconstructed anymore. Both pillars, decorated with representations of Heracles, severely narrowed the passageway and blocked the street for wagon traffic. Above the pillars there was an arch complemented with a building inscription. Nikai (figures of Victory) with laurel wreaths and palm branches stood in the spandrels of the arch.
