The Hercules Gate stood on Curetes Street, narrowing traffic to prevent vehicles. The gate was carved in the 2nd century AD, but was moved to its current location from someplace else in the 4th century AD. In each high-relief Hercules uses a lion skin. They belonged originally to a two storey building.
The Hercules Gate was located towards the end of the Curetes Street and was called the Hercules gate because of the relief of Hercules on it. The relief on the gate dates back to the second century AD. Only the two side of the columns remain today and the other parts of it have not been found. The relief of the flying Nike in the Domitian Square is thought to also be a part of this gate.
The Heracles Gate narrowed the access to the street, preventing the passage of vehicles thus making Curetes Street a pedestrian area.
