Deze poort vormde één van de drie toegangen tot de middeleeuwse stad en werd in 1488 gebouwd op de zeedijk. In 1512 verdedigden de Amsterdammers vanaf dit punt met succes hun stad tegen de Geldersen.
Het gebouw stond oorspronkelijk voor driekwart in het water. Pas in 1614 is door demping het huidige plein ontstaan. In 1600 werd de stadsmuur afgebroken, in 1617 besloot het stadsbestuur dat d'oude Antoniespoort tot een Waag zal worden bequam gemaect.

Old gate to medieval Amsterdam, built in 1488. Untill 1614 this building was standing in the canal. In 1617 it became a weighingstation.
[English translation of the Dutch portion of the marker text:]
This gate was one of three access points to the medieval city and was built on the water in 1488. In 1512, from this point the Amsterdammers successfully defended their city against the Geldersen (attackers from the Utrecht and Gelderland areas).
The building originally stood three-quarters in the water. Only in 1614 was the current surrounding square created by filling in the area. In 1600 the city walls were broken down, and in 1617 the city council decided that the old Antoniespoort shall would be converted to a weigh house.
