Acropolis in Athens is the testament to the rise and fall of many empires that have left their marks here. Built later than the gateway of Propylaia, the entrance to Acroppolis, the Beulé Gate was built as a Roman defensive entrance to the Acropolis. Today it is used as the visitors' exit. What makes this gate quite an interesting one to stand and marvel at is that it is conspicuous among Athens' ancient monuments in being named after an archaeologist, Charles Ernest Beule(1826-1874), who excavated it in 1852. Estimated to be built in 280 AD as a response to an attack by the east Germanic Heruli tribe in 267 AD, this gate looks imposing with its two massive but uneven sized towers (or pylons).
