The Golden gate

Last updated on Saturday, 17 February 2018

The gate was later, under the Venetian influence, called "Porta Aurea", in translation - Golden gate. It remained its name until today.

It was built in a rectangular shape with its front decorated with niches that used to feature the sculptures of four provincial rulers - of the Emperor Diocletian and his co-regent Maximilian, in the upper row of the niches, and with sculpture of an eagle a symbol of Jupiter, between the two.There were the statues of their two successors to the throne - Caesars Galerius and Constantine - in the lower row of the niches.
