On top the city wall, this passage allowed the soldiers to walk from one end of the city wall to the other, protected from the view and from the attacks of enemies. This is what Romans built on each of the edges of their empire. I have seen exactly the same structure in southern Tunisia, on the "limes" of the Roman Empire.
