ADIYAMAN - Anadolu Agency
A museum in southeastern Turkey said on Aug. 13 they have discovered the remains of a Roman-era military observation tower. Passers-by in Adıyaman’s Gerger district saw the remains and informed the museum.
A team from the Adıyaman Museum inspected the remains, and determined the towers were five meters high with a diameter of 9 square meters.
The entrance door depicted a sword. Mehmet Alkan, deputy curator of Adıyaman Museum, said most of the structure remained intact.
Alkan also said they would apply to a cultural assets protection board in neighboring Şanlıurfa province to register the tower.
