By Hatice Gonnet-Bağana

Abstract

Located on the Kahta-Kocahisar and Cendere Creek, Cendere Bridge was built by Roman Emperor Septimius Severus (193-211). It consists of a big arch and a secondary small arch in the southern side and at the south entrance of the bridge there are two columns and in the north end there is one column. Originally it had four columns, each dedicated by Septimius Severius to his wife Julia Domna and his sons Caracalla and Publius Septimius Geta, yet Geta's pilllar was removed after he was murdered by his brother Caracalla.135 film (36×24 mm
