Hadrian's Arch Athens Reviews
Hadrian's Arch Jan 02, 2012
Hadrian's Arch was constructed in 131 AD by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as part of a wall separating the old and new cities of Athens. On the side of the arch facing the Acropolis is the inscription, "This is Athens, the former city of Theseus" while the other side reads, "This is the city of Hadrian and not of Theseus". The 18 meters (59ft) gate was made of marble from nearby Mount Pentelikon and decorated in the Corinthian order.
