Intra Muros – Roman Colonnade1966 / source Panorimo
Within the archaeological site are the remains of another Roman colonnade from the 3rd century AD. Only six Corinthian columns are upright with part of the original frieze connecting two of them. This colonnade was part of a ceremonial passage that led to the Temple of Baalat-Gebal (the Lady of Byblos, a Semitic goddess equated with Hathor and Isis), which was rebuilt during Roman times and rededicated to Aphrodite (Astarte). – hier: Byblos.
