Mural Gallery, Eastern Curtain, Perge

Posted by Picasa

A mural gallery in an eastern curtain at Perge. The wall-walk is only 1.6 meters wide here and behind the buttresses it narrows down to 0.6 meters. There was not room enough for placing and using missile engines, so the mural gallery was either used only by archers, or else temporary wooden planking was placed beyond the stone wall-walk between the buttresses.
