Myra East Fort

Posted by Picasa

A reconstruction of Myra East Fort or Islum (after McNicoll). The fort comprises two square towers connected by curtains in such a way as to form a small irregular courtyard. The entrance to the fort is in a salient made by a bend in the walls. The curtains were two to three stories high (depending on the terrain) and the towers had four stories.
