Cendere Bridge

17 May 2013

There were originally four Corinthian columns on the bridge, two columns on the Kâhta side dedicated to Septimius Severus and his wife, and two columns on the Sincik side dedicated to Caracalla and Geta. But the column of Geta was removed following his assassination by Caracalla, who damned his memory and ordered his name to be removed from all inscriptions.
