An unusual structure close to the water edge, on the western side of Apollonia, refurbished in Byzantine times. The presence of Maltese crosses led to its interpretation as a martyrion, but an administrative role has also been suggested.

architectural complex


Kenrick (2013) sees the architectural complex, including a circular bastion near the sea and a series of rooms built in Byzantine times, as a single entity (the "West Gate"), while in Christian Monuments (2003) they are considered two separate ones (the "West Gate" and the "Byzantine Rooms"). Stucchi (1975) only refers to the Southern structure (the "Byzantine Rooms", that he calls "Martyrium Biabsidato"), with no mention of the bastion.
