When the Romans were confronted with the River Euphrates they were hardly going to give up and Emperor Septus Severus ordered a bridge to be built across. The bridge was still in use until ten years ago and is still structurally sound. Not bad for a 2,000 year old bridge.
A stone at the centre of the bridge has the original dedication to Septus Severus.
Worth a few photos en route to Nemrut.
