Western Curtain, Perge

Posted by Picasa

The curtain on the western side of the Perge, viewed from the city. Projecting courses of eaves are visible on the top. Rows of eaves allowed the widening of the wall-walk, thus making it more convenient for traffic and defense without conducting the labor-consuming work of broadening the entire wall.
