Herculaneum Gate, Pompeii

This gate is situated in the north west corner of the city walls on the Via Consolare. It consists of 3 passageways, the central one intended for vehicles while the two flanking archways catered for pedestrians. The gateway is built in a mixture of opus listatum (bricks and stone in alternate layers) with brick and tufa and opus incertum with lava stone.
