“We found out that the wall was from the Roman era because the ancient city of Ophrynion is behind this road. There is also an old Roman bridge inside a creek in this area. We think that this bridge and wall are structures from that time. The wall is a very good example of engineering in that era,” Perincek told members of the press.
