Palmyra colonnade

Palmyra colonnade


Colonnaded Cardo-Maximus (actually in fact the decumanus) which unlike most Roman cities was not paved, to allow the passage of camels. The columns all have brackets which would have held statues of local dignataries. Behind the columns were porticos and shops, the foundations of which can still be seen.
