Geometrical Elevation of the Porta Aenea
Geometrical Elevation of the Porta Aenea, or East Wall of the Palace.
A. Porta AEnea.
B B. Octagon Towers on each Side of the Gate.
C. Square Towers of the Palace.
Elevation of the same as it now remains
D. Modern Building, where the Ancient Wall is destroyed.
E. Square Tower, which had been greatly decayed, and afterwards repaired in this Form. Although but little of the Ancient Porta aenea remains, by which I could form a proper Conjecture of its ancient State, yet I was enabled to make out the Whole from the Remains of the Porta Ferrea on the west Side of the Palace (see Plate XVII.), which is almost perfeftly entire, and seems to be precisely similar to this Gate in those Parts that still remain.
