The location of the above gateway to a city remains unconfirmed. The photograph (Pe01-013) is a puzzle: it shows what looks like a body of men, some with queues, in uniform, but without weapons, going towards and through the gate. Also an official on the right, in a darker uniform, is perhaps inspecting someone’s goods? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
