D’une porte inconnue des remparts occidentaux de Thessalonique

Charal Bakirtzis

Abstract


Recently a central street of the Roman period was discovered, which seems to be prolonged eastwards as far as the Gate of Archangels and westwards as far as a point of the walls, between the Gold Gate and the Lite Gate, where no other gate is seen. This happens because the western portion of the fortification of Thessaloniki consists of a two-period wall: the outside wall is erected on a foundation of re-used marble seats and has big triangular jetties. The inside wall, where the unknown gate must be, has small rectangular towers and it is built by stones and brick-rows.
