On the north side of Curetes Street are marble pedestals between the columns. Each one bears the name of an ancient benefactor. These people were immortalized with their statue standing on the bases. Only the headless likeness of Alexandros remains (lower left). He was a prominent physician. At this point, Curetes Street narrows at Hercules Gate. The tribute to the Roman god of incredible strength was created in the 2nd century and moved here two hundred years later. Since then, the path through uptown was pedestrian-only.
