English Text:
The three-storeyed gateway marks the junction of the Processional Way in the direction of Ortygia. Two narrower passageways framed the broad street gateway, of which the upper storey is reminiscent of Hadrian's Gate in Athens. Already begun by ca. A.D. 117, the building was restored after an earthquake (A.D. 270); water basins were fitted into the side bays.
The partial restoration (1986-1990) was financed by Anton Kallinger-Prskawetz.
