Roman portico in Agios Charalambos, Maroneia


At the end of the road leading from Maroneia the port of Agios Charalambos, is located a monumental Roman marble portico built in the area. This portico was leading to a large public space, likely the city market, in Roman times and is the work of the emperor Hadrian, who visited the Maroneia during the 124-125 AD. The Maronites then honored him with a statue which has been lost. But the pedestal with an inscription was found and kept in the garden of the Museum of Komotini.
