The Porte Scee (Porta V)

The Porte Scee were the majestic gates of the ancient city of Troy, which, over time, gave their name to a specific architectural element.
They were twisted, crooked gates that interrupted the straight perimeter of the walls.
In addition, the gates were reinforced to their right by a tower, where sentries would stand. Therefore, assailants who tried to attack the city were unable to hurl themselves against it with maximum force, since by coming from one direction only, they were forced to expose their right flank, undefended by their shield, to attacks from the tower adjacent to the gate.
