Byzantine Rampart Aug 26, 2008
The recent discovery of the Roman theatre a few yards from the rampart is the key to the date of construction of these solid walls, which include materials from the Byzantine period. In the mid 6th century A.C. Byzantine rule revitalized the city and produced upon redevelopment. Part of the foundations of the arcade built around the access grounds to the theatre, were reused for the ramparts of the Byzan-tine city. This curious superimposed construction with its outstanding Roman mosaics, now lies beneath the Municipal Exhibition Hall.

El descubrimiento del teatro romano, a escasa distancia de los restos, ha fechado estos potentes muros entre los que había materiales de época bizantina. A mediados del siglo VI d. C. el dominio bizantino reactivó la ciudad y produjo reformas urbanas. Parte de los cimientos del pórtico que cercaban el jardín de acceso al teatro fueron reutilizados en las murallas de la ciudad bizantina. Actualmente bajo la Sala Municipal de Exposiciones existe esta curiosa superposición donde destacan los mosaicos romanos.
