Bird’s Rock Road Monument

It was ordered by the Roman Emperor Tiberius Germanicus Claudius and built by Gaius Julius Aguilla between the years of 41–54 A.D.  Considered as unique in Anatolia, the monument is composed of a headless human statue engraved in rocks, a Roman eagle figure symbolizing sovereignty, and two epitaphs. The epitaphs read, “For peace and friendship between the states and for the memory of the Emperor Germanicus, Gaius Julius Aquila cracked this mountain and built this resort with funds granted to him.” The Kemerdere Bridge in the Valley of Cevizlik is located one kilometer down the Roman Road in front of the monument.
