Tower at Diocaesararia

Posted by Picasa

This tower is viewed from the East. Two doors have been discovered in the tower; one on the ground floor (in the southern wall), the other on the second floor (in the eastern wall). The designation of the latter is subject to debate. Some scholars believe that it was the second entrance to the tower, others think that it opened onto a balcony, and was made solely for amenity. The fact that the door leads to a stone staircase connecting the stories, not to a room, seems to lend weight to the former interpretation.
