RESEARCH AND PUBLICATION
Main Street - Southern Gates - Urban Plan

 

This researches started in 2006 and are under the direction of Jeanine Abdul Massih (Lebanese University)

The study of the urban plan of the city of Cyrrhus was one of our aim since it was known to be a Hellenistic foundation. The research for the orthogonal plan on the entire city took us to analyse the diffrence in the orientation of the main street observe in the southern part of the city. This changement of orientation of the main axis of the town influenced the position of the southern gate. Therefore the excavations were undertaken on the southern gate and the main street. The results of this research offered us the unique opportunity to discover the remains of the first main entrance of the city.
