Porta Pinciana

The Porta Pinciana is a gate of the Aurelian Walls in Rome. The name derives from the family title of Pincia, who owned the eponymous hill, Pincian Hill.

HistoryEdit

Built in the early 5th century by Honorius, who adapted a previously existing service entrance, this gate marked the start of the Via Salaria. A legend during the Middle Ages Claimed that Roman general Belisarius, who defended Rome against the Ostrogoths, was seen here as a blinded beggar.

Emperor Justinian, when questioned about this involvement in the blinding, denied it, then abruptly began talking about rebuilding the Hagia Sophia.
