"Hadrian?s Arch" Hadrian's Arch Tip by lashr1999

Hadrian's Arch, Athens: 23 reviews and 33 photos

 
 

Hadrian’s Arch was built in 132 AD. The arch has some interesting engraving on it. On one side it says,” This is Athens, the ancient city of Theseus”. On the other side it says, “This is the city of Hadran and not of Theseus”. This means if you stand on one side of the arch you were in ancient Athens and if you stood on the other side you were in the modern roman city of Athens.
