Curetes Street runs from the Government sector of the town, down
the hill to the Celsus Library. It was paved with marble and had colonnades
on each side. Two marble columns with reliefs of Heracles guard the upper
gate and the entrance to the Government sector. Some of the marble slabs
on the street are striated to stop slipping in the rain and others are
worn from the carts running up and down the road.
