Penkalas Bridge in 1992
|No. of spans||5|
|Construction end||2nd century AD|
The 2nd-century AD structure was once one of four ancient bridges in Aezani and is assumed to have been the most important crossing-point due to its central location in the vicinity of the Zeus temple and the direct access it provided to the Roman road to Cotyaeum (Kütahya). According to reports by European travellers, the ancient parapet remained in use as late as 1829, having been replaced today by an unsightly iron railing.
Around 290 m upstream, another well-preserved, almost identical five-arched Roman bridge leads across the Penkalas.
