The Roman Gateway / Guard tower

A familiar sight around the cities and large towns of Rome's empire were these internal gateways and guard towers. They could separate different districts within an urban setting allowing the Roman authorities the ability to "seal-off" any trouble in a specific area from moving to another.

At the same time they were perfect for posting public notices, displaying captured criminals, bandits and rebels. and collecting taxes!

They would be manned, night and day, by anywhere from 6-10 men. A signal beacon world also enable the small garrison to notify other Gateway/ Guard Towers of trouble or the need for reinforcements.
