Aqueduct




Aqueduct is among the monuments of Aspendos city.
It has survived through the present day in a very good state. It was built on the north to bring water from the mountains to the city.
At some points it reaches a height of 15m. Water was conveyed inside a water pipe made of cubic stone blocks, the centers of which were drilled to enable them to resist high pressure.
On the archway the water was first brought down from the hills to the plain and then arrived the city within the same pipes.
The aqueduct has two towers which has 30m height ascended with stairs, which was built to release the air accumulated in the system and to adjust pressure.
One of these towers is located in a place near the acropolis hill and the other is on the slope of the mountain. It was written in an unearthed inscription dating back to 2nd century AD that a person called Tiberius Claudius Italicus donated two million denarius for the works towards bringing the water to the city.
