"The short segment of Roman avenue uncovered here bellongs to a sequence of east-west thoroughfares that span 2500 years and are stratified one above the other. A lydian road existed in the 7th and 6th centuries B.S.; its gravel surfaces, which have been exposed 100m . to the east, rest 2m below roman paving. Cobbled surfaces of Byzantine and Ottoman roads were excavated above the Roman portico remains. In 1950 the route was shifted slightly to the south, to create the present macadam higway.
The Roman avenue was the most monumental of these thoroughfares. 18.5 wide (more than twice the width of the modern highway), it was paved with marble blocks and flanked by covered porticos that had colored mosaic floors. On th fars sid there is the bases of two portico columns.) Existing features of the avenue date from the 4th and 6th centuries A. D.
