The Antonia Fortress
Herod named this fortress, on the north side of the Temple in Jerusalem, in honor of his patron, Mark Antony. It had four corner towers and broad spaces for troop quarters. Though rebuilt and perhaps enlarged by Herod, this citadel had existed much earlier, according to the Jewish Encyclopedia. It is depicted here by a model, but portions of the Antonio Fortress may still be seen beneath convents on the Via Dolorosa.
