Inscription
The richly ornamented gate was financed by imperial freedmen Mazaeus and Mithridates in 2 B.C. The refined articulation of the southern façade with alternating projecting and re-entrant elements, as well as the use of arches and beams, was repeated in the original side wings of the building. Statues of the imperial family stood on the inscribed attic zone. The unadorned northern side was connected to the Agora Hall.
The re-erection of the gate (1982-1988) was made possible by Anton Kallinger-Prskawetz.
