Gate of Diocletian!

Far on the northeastern side of the island -- and probably only seen if you circle around that side in the boat back to shore -- is a small, very blocky looking set of ruins. The arches are the only remains of a late-roman addition to the site -- built by Diocletian.

A small temple of Augustus lies right behind them, although very little remains
